Raytheon has been awarded the performance based logistics (PBL) contract by the US Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Weapon Systems Support to provide AN/ALR-67(V)3 radar warning receiver products and services.


Under the $89m four-year, firm fixed-price contract, Raytheon will provide supply support and repair nine weapons replaceable assemblies for the AN/ALR-67(V)3 radar warning receiver equipped on the F/A-18 A/B/C/D Hornet aircraft, as well as on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft.


CCooperative logistics supply support arrangement (CLSSA) / repairable item replaceable option (RIRO) support for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and Canadian Forces' F/A-18 aircraft will also be provided by the company.


Developed to enhance carrier-based F/A-18 A-F tactical aircraft survivability, the ALR-67(V)3 advanced radar warning receiver delivers situational awareness in complex and high-density environments.


NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support Contracts director captain Chris Mosher said that the recent contract would improve material availability and aircraft readiness, while delivering cost savings.


The AN/ALR-67(V)3 features precision digital parameter measurements for improved performance and serves as a key enabler for advanced functionality during combat operations over the next several decades.


"The renewed ALR-67(V)3 PBL contract will continue to support fleet readiness by maximising logistics support while achieving a lower overall cost to the government and the best possible value to the taxpayer," Mosher added.


Used primarily as a fighter escort and for fleet air defence, the F/A-18 Hornet all-weather aircraft also provides force projection, interdiction and close and deep air support.


The combat-proven strike fighter has been designed to provide enhanced interoperability, total force support for the combatant commander and for the troops on the ground.
