RAYTHEON AWARDED $32.5 MILLION CONTRACT FOR PATRIOT UPGRADES

 LEXINGTON, Mass., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army Missile Command has awarded a $32.5 million contract to Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) to provide upgrade kits for the Patriot missile system developed by the company under the Army's Quick Reaction Program (QRP).
 The kits, to be manufactured under this contract at Raytheon's Andover, Mass., plant are for U.S. Army and Israeli Patriot systems. Other Patriot users, including The Netherlands, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait, will upgrade their systems under other contracts.
 The upgrades will give Patriot users improved acquisition range, reduced radar antenna interference, and more flexible launcher and radar emplacement capabilities.
 William H. Swanson, senior vice president and general manager of Raytheon's Missile Systems Division, said the contract "further affirms Patriot users' confidence in the Patriot missile system and its ability to counter aircraft, cruise missiles, and tactical ballistic missiles."
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a diversified, $9 billion international technology company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aviation Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
