Raytheon has been awarded a $15.8 million contract for 323 additional 2000-S24 miniaturized airborne GPS receivers.
The contract, which includes new receivers as well as the sustainment of existing equipment, is the first order placed under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract awarded to Raytheon by the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, according to the Raytheon announcement.
Raytheon has delivered 2,000 MAGR 2000-S24 receivers to the U.S. military and allied nations since 2004.
“Our innovative MAGR 2000-S24 design makes future unit replacement virtually unnecessary,” said Sharon Black, director of GPS and navigation systems for Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems division. “Capability enhancements are as simple as swapping out the electronics module card, providing a highly cost-effective path for keeping fleets up to date with the latest GPS technology.”
