"Our partnership with Nammo is another example of the close relationship Raytheon enjoys with our supplier-partners," said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, president of Raytheon Missile Systems. "The teamwork between Raytheon and Nammo has contributed significantly to our shared success."

Following a lengthy qualification process in October 2012, Nammo was certified as an AMRAAM rocket motor supplier for Raytheon and has been delivering motors at the rate of approximately 90 motors per month.

"The Raytheon-Nammo partnership has been a model of success throughout the past year," said Ronald Krebs, AMRAAM program director with Raytheon Missile Systems. "Raytheon has worked extremely hard to make certain our end-user customers continue to receive AMRAAM missiles on schedule."
