MARLBOROUGH, Mass. Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems has received a $48.77 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract to produce, test, and deliver fully integrated Navy multiband terminals (NMT), which are multiband capable satellite communications terminals that enable protected and wideband communications.  

According to information from Raytheon, the terminals will give Navy decision-makers and warfighters expanded data-throughput capacity and protection against hostile intercepts. The NMT -- set to be installed on about 300 U.S. Navy ships, submarines, and land stations -- will replace existing SATCOM systems developed and installed by Raytheon during the mid-1980s.
