Kuchera Defense Systems won a sub-contract from Raytheon to build parts of the transmitter for the Sea Sparrow ship based air defense system. See an article here. The contract could be worth over $3 M if the next option is awarded as well as this $1.6 M base contract. The company employs less then twenty people in making the part, but it shows that bigger systems spill down to small companies and that building a modern weapon integrates a variety of suppliers and components.
