TEWKSBURY, Mass., Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Com­pa­ny (NYSE: RTN) has been award­ed a $254 mil­lion con­tract mod­i­fi­ca­tion for the com­ple­tion of soft­ware devel­op­ment for the DDG 1000-class destroy­er program.

Under the con­tract, Raytheon Inte­grat­ed Defense Sys­tems (IDS) will per­form devel­op­ment engi­neer­ing activ­i­ties for Total Ship Com­put­ing Envi­ron­ment Infra­struc­ture inte­gra­tion, ship con­trol sys­tems, as well as asso­ci­at­ed Mis­sion Sys­tems Equip­ment soft­ware devel­op­ment and integration.

The con­tract mod­i­fi­ca­tion includes devel­op­ment, test and deliv­ery of DDG 1000 Total Ship Com­put­ing Envi­ron­ment (TSCE) soft­ware for Self Defense Test Ship, post-deliv­ery avail­abil­i­ty, post-shake­down avail­abil­i­ty, SPY‑3 vol­ume search soft­ware and firmware devel­op­ment, as well as soft­ware main­te­nance in sup­port of the Zumwalt-class destroy­er program.
