Raytheon will overhaul the Royal Canadian Navy's Phalanx Close-In Weapon Systems, the company announced on 20 February. 

Under the $300 million contract by Public Services and Procurement Canada, RCL, working with Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, will provide maintenance, fleet technical support, repair and overhaul services on the Phalanx mounts which will ensure the systems are ready to address current and emerging threats.
