Funding from underwriters has dwindled to the point where we have to reduce our product load. It made sense to drop the Week in Review since it’s primarily a recap of news items already available on our daily news feed.
The column is not going away entirely. We’ll post columns from time to time as the need arises, likely whenever a big story in 2020 calls for additional attention. For those who have been loyal readers, we thank you.
Now for your week in review, a typically slow week during the Christmas season:
Raytheon Missile Systems Co., Tucson, Ariz., was awarded a $768.3 million contract for Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) Production Lot 33. This contract provides for the production of the AMRAAM missiles, captive air training missiles, guidance sections, AMRAAM telemetry system, spares and other production engineering support hardware. Work will be performed in Tucson with an expected completion date of Feb. 28, 2023. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Air Dominance Division Contracting Office, Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., is the contracting activity.
