: 12 September, 2007  (New Product)
Thales awarded £21.7 million US contract for target detection devices
The missile electronics area of Thales UK's air systems business has signed a 21.7m contract with Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson Arizona, USA to supply in excess of 5,000 target detection devices (TDDs) for the TOW 2B anti-armour missile system. Under this contract Thales will continue its long association with Raytheon and produce the TDDs for the US Department of Defense.

Thales will manufacture the TDDs at its world-class facilities in Basingstoke, with production starting in 2007 and continuing through 2009. This contract highlights Thales' commitment to the TOW 2B programme, Raytheon and the US Department of Defense. Since 1989 Thales has produced over 47,000 TDDs.

John Copley, Managing Director of Thales Missile Electronics, says: 'As world leaders in anti-armour fuzing and sensors, we believe that this new contract strengthens and builds on our relationship with Raytheon and with the TOW 2B programme. We look forward to continuing this relationship for many years to come.'
