News ItemRaytheon Wins Contract for a “Directed-Energy” Missile

May 2, 2016 –

At a recent press conference, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, announced a $10 million contract award that includes $4.8 million for Raytheon Albuquerque to refurbish two Counter-Electronics High-Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) missiles left over from the original CHAMP Joint Capabilities Technology Demonstration contract that was completed in 2012; $3.8 million for the Air Force Research Laboratory and $1.4 million that Sandia received from the Air Force to refurbish the pulsed power driver for the CHAMP missiles. Raytheon Albuquerque now employs 170 people in the Park and the new contract hopefully will lead to additional hiring.
