TEWKSBURY, Mass., Dec. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN)
has been awarded a $12,921,937 modification to a previously awarded contract
to exercise options for Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) for the
AN/USG-2B Shipboard System and three planar array antenna assembly systems.

CEC is a sensor netting system that significantly improves battle force
anti-air warfare capability by extracting and distributing sensor-derived
information such that the superset of this data is available to all
participating CEC units. CEC improves battle force effectiveness by improving
overall situational awareness and by enabling longer range, cooperative,
multiple, or layered engagement strategies.

amount of $6,887,392 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at
