TEWKSBURY, Mass. (AP) — Defense contractor Raytheon Co. said Tuesday it has been awarded a contract worth $26.9 million to provide technical assistance to Taiwan's missile defense system.

The award from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command represents a modification to a technical assistance contract granted in 2008.

Raytheon will provide field engineers to refurbish Taiwan's Patriot equipment and will extend the services of current advisers assisting with training, operational planning and sustainment of Patriot systems.

Raytheon IDS is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot air and missile defense systems.
