Raytheon recently won a contract worth $14.1 million to add 18 more Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles to Lot 32, raising total production in that batch to 590 missiles, an Air Force spokeswoman told Inside the Air Force June 13.

Work will run through the end of January 2021. Since March, the company has also received $535.2 million for Lot 32, including for foreign military sales and spares.

The Pentagon and foreign customers plan to spend $20.3 billion to develop and procure 17,300 missiles.

Raytheon planned to add AMRAAM upgrades during Lot 31 but later bumped them to the end of Lot 33.
