This article presents information about the U.S. defense industry. Raytheon has been awarded a $29,4 million follow-on contract from Electric Boat Corp. to build submarine high-data-rate multiband satellite communication systems for the Virginia-class attack submarines. Raytheon Missile Systems Co., Tucson, Arizona, is developing a new variant, the Block II, of the combat proven AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW). The new version will include a unitary 500-pound warhead and an improved Global Positioning System receiver. Improved manufacturing processes and reduced parts count are expected to reduce the unit cost of the JSOW.
