CANBERRA - Australia will soon receive additional Standard Missile - 2s (SM-2s) from the United States. To meet this order, Raytheon will be restarting SM-2 production.

In addition, the United States will provide new SM-2s to Japan, South Korea and the Netherlands. These countries are pooling resources to place a $650 million contract for SM-2s.

Production of the SM-2 ended in 2013. Production at the Raytheon factory is being reconfigured and modernized in a move to increase efficiencies.

New SM-2 assembly will begin in early 2018. The first deliveries are to begin in 2020. These deliveries will include more than 280 SM-2 Block IIIA and IIIB missiles.
