The U.S. Air Force has awarded Boeing‘s (NYSE: BA) satellite systems subsidiary a $376,523,860 contract modification for work on the Wideband Global SATCOM satellite system, the Pentagon said Friday.

The awarded option calls for Boeing to produce, process, launch and activate on-orbit Satellite Vehicle 9.

WGS serves as the military’s highest-capacity satellite communications system, providing 10 times the communications capacity of its predecessor, the DSCS III satellite, according to Boeing’s website.
