Raytheon Co.’s Integrated Defense Systems business will receive a $7.5 million modification to an existing contract covering ship self-defense systems, according to a recent U.S. Department of Defense announcement.

Under the deal, Raytheon will produce open architecture network switching cabinets for the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, three dock landing ships (USS Gunston Hall, USS Carter Hall and USS Pearl Harbor), two U.S. Navy test sites and the Raytheon software integration lab.

The bulk of the work will be done in Portsmouth, R.I., but 20 percent will be done in San Diego. Naval Sea Systems Command awarded the contract.

Raytheon is based in the Boston suburb of Waltham, Mass. It reported $24.4 billion in 2012 revenue.
