Raytheon will supply spare parts for a Patriot air and missile defence system configuration-3 to Taiwan and Kuwait under a US Army foreign military sale programme.

Under the $73m contract, Raytheon will supply spare parts for the Patriot missiles in support of the upgrade and operation of existing Patriot systems fielded by both the countries.

The configuration-3 patriot missile defence system allows the use of Lockheed Martin’s Patriot advanced capability-3 (PAC-3) missiles and Raytheon’s guidance-enhanced missile-tactical (GEM-T) missiles.

The system also enables missile launchers to be stationed miles in front of the radar, a unique feature over previous Patriot systems.

Work will be carried out by Raytheon Integrated Defence Systems at the Integrated Air DefenSe Center in Andover, Massachusetts.

The contract has been awarded by the US Army and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, and is part of a five-year agreement for foreign military sales of Patriot system spares.
