The U.S. Air Force has granted a $39 million contract to Raytheon to spearhead the development and integration of the service's Battle Management Command and Control software into a prototype designed for air base air defense.

Under the terms of this contract, Raytheon will take the lead in creating a command-and-control foundation geared towards countering aerial threats and safeguarding U.S. air bases situated across the globe.

In 2022, Raytheon unveiled an Air Base Air Defense solution in Andoya, Norway, in collaboration with the Air Force Research Lab. The insights garnered from this experimental endeavor will play a pivotal role in shaping the upcoming prototype.
