In April, 2020 the Pentagon gave Raytheon a multi-billion dollar contract to develop and produce the long-range stand-off (LRSO) missile, an all-new nuclear-armed cruise missile to be launched from the wings of warplanes. We will again give notice to Raytheon that production of this missile violates the spirit and letter of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
