LaBarge
: 02 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Raytheon has placed an order on LaBarge for complex cable assemblies for use on the Rolling Airframe Missile guided weapon system
LaBarge has received a $1.3 million contract from Raytheon Missile Systems to continue to provide complex cable assemblies for the upgraded Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Guided Missile Weapon System.

RAM is a supersonic, lightweight, quick reaction, fire-and-forget missile providing defence against anti-ship cruise missiles, Helicopter and airborne threats, and hostile surface craft. The missileís autonomous dual-mode, passive radio frequency and infrared guidance design provides a high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously. Produced in partnership by Raytheon and RAMSYS of Germany, RAM is aboard more than 100 ships as an integral self-defence weapon for the navies of the United States, Germany, Korea, Greece, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. The cable assemblies built by LaBarge will be used in the RAM launcher on all ships.

LaBarge, a Raytheon preferred supplier, will perform the work at its Berryville, Ark., facility. Production is expected to begin in May 2010 and continue through April 2013.
