Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE:DCO) has received $15 million in follow-on
contracts from Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) to continue producing a variety of
interconnect and electronic assemblies for the U.S. Navy's Tomahawk cruise
missile. The awards extend Ducommun’s work on the program through 2015;
Ducommun LaBarge Technologies is a Raytheon preferred supplier and recipient
of Raytheon's Six Sigma Relationship Award as well as the prestigious
Leadership Excellence Award.

"Ducommun is very pleased to continue supporting one of the Navy's most
sophisticated weapons by providing our electronics manufacturing expertise to
Raytheon on the Tomahawk Block IV," said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman,
president and chief executive officer.

With a range of 1,000 miles, the Tomahawk Block IV is a surface- and
submarine-launched, precision-strike, stand-off weapon. Tomahawk cruise
missiles can fly into heavily defended airspace and precisely strike
high-value targets with minimal collateral damage; in addition, a Tomahawk can
loiter, shift course instantly on command, and transmit a picture of its
target to controllers halfway around the world.
