The U.S. Navy signed a $500-million contract with Massachusetts defense manufacturer Raytheon Technologies Corp. and East Hartford's Pratt & Whitney Military Engines to make parts for F-135 jet engines.

Spare parts produced under the contract will be used to fill requirements for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, non-Department of Defense participants and Foreign Military Sales customers, according to the U.S. Department of Defense.

Asked about the contract, a Raytheon spokesman referred the Hartford Business Journal to Pratt & Whitney. A representative for Pratt did not respond to the inquiry.

Almost all the work for the contract -- 93% -- will be completed at Pratt's facilities in East Hartford, with the remainder split between worksites in Indiana and the United Kingdom. The contract expires in Dec. 2024, according to DOD.
