USAF, Navy Deals Worth $102 Million
Two big new contracts for Boeing's aerospace division... as the
US Air Force and US Navy awarded programs worth a combined $102
million dollars last week.
Under an $80 million contract, the Air Force ordered a small
diameter bomb weapons system that can be fitted to fighters,
bombers, and unmanned aerial vehicles. The St. Louis Buisness
Journal reports the system will include munitions, carriages,
containers, miscellaneous support equipment, load
trainers/carriages and flight termination system/telemetry.
For the Navy, Boeing will build and test 16 Reconfigurable
Transportable Consolidated Automated Support Systems (RTCASS) that
can be used to automatically test and troubleshoot aircraft
electronic systems in the field. Boeing will also provide one
RTCASS to the Air Force.
Both contracts are scheduled to be filled by late 2008.
The work is a big boost for Boeing's Integrated Defense Systems
unit... which earlier this year reported a substantial drop in
