Raytheon Awarded Phase 3 Contract for SORDS

TEWKSBURY, Mass., March 26, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Homeland Security has awarded Raytheon Company a phase 3 contract to continue development of a Stand-Off Radiation Detection System (SORDS).

Phase 3 is an eight-month contract for $2.3 million managed by DHS' Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO); it includes the construction of a prototype. This is the third of a four-phase development program worth a potential $9.9 million if all four options are exercised.


"The purpose of SORDS is to develop an advanced nuclear sensor that can determine the type and location of radiation sources at much greater distances than current systems. We are excited about helping DNDO accomplish its mission to protect the homeland," said Michael Del Checcolo, vice president of Engineering for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
