Raytheon Co. has received a $121.8 million contract from Lockheed Martin to deliver Lot 3 and Lot 4 Common Integrated Processors (CIP) to the F/A-22 fighter program. This award represents 42 ship-sets of CIP Hardware.

Raytheon has been a supplier of major processing systems for Lockheed Martin's F/A-22 since 1991. "The award helps solidify Raytheon's future as the main supplier of processor avionics for the F/A-22 production program and ensures its participation in future architecture changes or upgrades," said Jack Kelble, president of Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems.

The F/A-22 CIP consists of line replaceable modules and multi-chip modules. It is the "brains" of the avionics system and provides a fully integrated, flexible and expandable architecture for performing communications, navigation, identification, electronic warfare, radar, and sensor fusion functions.

Contract work will be performed at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems' facilities in El Segundo, California, and Dallas and McKinney, Texas, and is expected to be complete by the end of 2006.
