TEWKSBURY, Mass. Raytheon Company announced it will build two additional shipsets of SPY-6 radars under a $250 million contract with the U.S. Navy. The company is now contracted to deliver a total of nine radar shipsets to DDG-51 Flight III destroyers.

According to the company, SPY-6 is a family of next generation, integrated air- and missile-defense radars that scale to meet mission requirements of a ship. It is intended to provide fleets with sharable sensor data as well as defense against ballistic and cruise missiles.

Now in production at Raytheon's advanced Radar Development Facility, AN/SPY-6(V) remains on schedule for delivery to the first DDG 51 Flight III, the future USS Jack H Lucas (DDG 125). The first delivery of AN/SPY-6(V)2 to LHA-8, the America Class Amphibious Assault Ship, is on plan for 2021.
