Raytheon Technologies’ business Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) has secured a contract to offer logistics and repair services for all US Marine Corps (USMC) ground equipment.

The five-year contract values around $495m.

As agreed, RI&S will deliver more than 10,000 repaired parts annually supporting the rehabilitation of USMC’s combat and tactical ground equipment.

The overhauling works will include parts of armoured vehicles, ground radars and communications systems among others.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space Global Training & Logistics vice-president Bob Williams said: “We provide logistics support for deployed systems around the globe.

“Our job is to ensure no mission is ever delayed because of a needed repair or missing part.”

Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, RI&S specialises in developing advanced sensors, training, and cyber and software solutions.

It is one of the four businesses that form Raytheon Technologies.

The latest contract is expected to nearly double the amount of equipment being managed by RI&S.

In March 2021, RI&S secured a five-year $146m contract to support the US Navy’s counter narco-terrorism operations. The contract will involve RI&S continue operating and maintaining the US Government’s relocatable over-the-horizon radar (ROTHR) system.

Last year, the business reported a pro forma revenue of $15bn.

According to the company, RI&S has civil, military and commercial customers in more than 46 countries.

Separately, Raytheon also delivered the US Navy’s first Block V configured Tomahawk missile this year. The move marked a major milestone for the capability modernisation programme.
