HARLOW, England, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon UK has been awarded a significant contract by the UK Ministry of Defence for delivery of a new GPS Anti-Jam Antenna System. The contract is for an undisclosed number of advanced systems for deployment in operational theaters spanning multiple vehicle platforms.
