Boeing Wins $895M for C-17 Hardware, Software Upgrades

BoeingLogoBoeing (NYSE: BA) has won an $895 million U.S. Air Force contract to update hardware and software on the C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft, the Dayton Business Journal reports.

Joe Cogliano writes that Boeing has won four of the 10 top contracts issued out of Ohio-based Wright-Patterson Air Force Base during 2012.

The 10-year contract issued by the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center near Dayton.

Work will occur in Long Beach, Calif. and will include upgrades such as weapons system development, hardware upgrades and integrated software, according to Cogliano

Boeing spent about $8.3 billion in purchases from Ohio companies in 2011, a company official told the Business Journal.

The company also has more than 500 suppliers in the state, which Cogliano writes supports nearly 250, 000 local jobs.

Boeing also holds a $2 billion contract for C-17 logistics support.
