Defence contractor Raytheon is set to provide field engineers to support Taiwan’s Patriot air and missile defence system.

Raytheon’s field engineers will help upgrade the country’s Patriot defence system under the $26.9m technical assistance contract.

Patriot programmes vice-president Sanjay Kapoor said upgrades ensure that Taiwan’s Patriots are fully capable of detecting, classifying and engaging all known and future hostile threats including aircraft, ballistic and cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The company will also extend the services of current advisers assisting with training, operational planning and sustainment of Patriot systems.

The contract, which is a modification to a technical assistance contract awarded in 2008, has been awarded by the US Army Aviation and Missile Command.
