Raytheon just picked up a $37.4 million contract to build a pre-prototype array of sensors for the network of eyes in the sky, scheduled for 2012.The job, to be finished by next September, calls for the development of a unit combining cloud-piercing ground synthetic aperture radar, moving target indication, and digital terrain elevation data.Last month, SAIC inked a deal worth up to $139.4 million for system integration work on the project.
