Boeing Wins WGS Satellite Deal from Air Force

Boeing (NYSE: BA) received $182 million from the Air Force for the firm to support the seventh Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellite, which is being procured under the new WGS Block II follow-on contract.

According to the firm, “the contract will ultimately include options for production of up to six WGS satellites, which are the highest-capacity communications satellites in the U.S. Department of Defense’s arsenal.”

“In a time of budgetary pressures, the award of this contract signifies the high-priority need of U.S. warfighters around the world for responsive and robust wideband communications, ” said Air Force Col. Don Robbins, WGS Group Commander. “It also recognizes the outstanding service being provided to our warfighters every day by the three on-orbit WGS Block I satellites already fielded by the Air Force and Boeing team.”
