Boeing has been awarded a $1.09 billion undefinitised modification to a previously awarded contract for the procurement of Redesigned Kill Vehicle (RKV) development. The Missile Defence Agency made the award, with work to include, but not limited to, payload development, payload ground testing, integration with the ground-based interceptor and ground-based midcourse defence ground system, flight testing and four initial production RKVs for initial fielding. The modification brings the total cumulative face value of the programme to $5.84 billion.
Boeing has recently received a $58.6 million, 35-month contract from the US Missile Defence Agency to demonstrate its evolved Multi-Object Kill Vehicle technology, which increases interceptors’ ability to locate and destroy missiles headed toward the US.
The Boeing Company, Missouri, has been awarded an $89,000,000 cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for incorporation of the Block II Infrared Search and Track System (IRST) in the F/A-18 E/F aircraft. Work is expected to be completed in April 2020.
