ANDOVER, Mass. Raytheon Company has signed an exclusive teaming agreement with Major Tool & Machine, Inc. to develop array structures for the U.S. Navy's SPY-6 radar program when it transitions from low-rate initial production to hardware production and sustainment.

SPY-6 is a family of next-generation, integrated air-and-missile defense radars that are being installed on more than 50 ships across seven Navy ship classes.

According to the company, the Raytheon-led SPY-6 program has met all 20 milestones, ahead of or on schedule.
