NavyRocket Aerospace companies Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Kaman (NYSE: KAMN) have been selected to develop GPS-guided weapons for Korea’s KF-16 and F-15K fighter aircraft, Arirang News reported Monday.

Boeing will build guided wing kits and Kaman will create the fuses for the air-to-ground bombs, Arirang News reports.
