Boeing to Build Air-Based Torpedo Launch System

BoeingLogoBoeing (NYSE: BA) has won a potential $47, 034, 172 contract to design and build a system aimed at helping the U.S. Navy launch torpedoes from altitudes of up to 30, 000 feet.

The High Altitude Anti-Submarine Warfare Weapon Capability Air Launch Accessory is designed to help Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) Mark 54 torpedo glide through the air after launching from a Boeing-made Poseidon plane, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Thursday.

John Keller writes the torpedo, when combined with the launch accessory, is built to glide for between seven and 10 minutes before entering the water.

HAAWC adaptor kits contain a flight control computer, GPS navigation system, power sources and parachutes intended to help bring the torpedo into the water, Keller writes.
