Boeing (NYSE: BA) has been awarded a $51 million contract to maintain guidance systems for the U.S. Air Force‘s land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The company said Thursday it will perform sustaining engineering work on the Minuteman III ICBM guidance technology through the contract.

Peggy Morse, vice president of Boeing’s directed energy and strategic systems unit,  said the company seeks to ensure “the Minuteman III force remains safe, secure and effective” through the continued support.

“Since 1958, Boeing has stood alongside the U.S. Air Force to design, develop and test ICBM systems, ” Morse said.

The company designed the long-range missile platform to carry multiple nuclear warheads.
