Jobs will be brought to Goleta thanks to a new a military contract secured by Raytheon Electronic Systems, according to a report from the Associated Press.
Due to the confidential nature of military agreements, officials were unable to comment on the $166.9 million Navy contract for infrared-guided missiles.
The air-to-air missile contract will reportedly provide Raytheon more than 250 jobs in Tucson, Ariz.; Andover, Mass.; and Goleta.
Raytheon officials were unsure exactly how many jobs the contract will provide or which buildings will be most impacted.
"It's too early to tell," said Lewis Brinson, a Raytheon spokesman. "We haven't made that assessment yet."
