Boeing Secures $93M Air Force Contract for E-3 AWACS Technical Support Services

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Boeing (NYSE: BA) a potential five-year, $92.9 million contract to provide sustainment engineering and technical services for the E-3 Sentry airborne warning and control system aircraft.

Boeing will support the military branch’s E-3 AWACS division under the sole-source contract that also covers foreign military sales to Japan, Saudi Arabia, U.K., France and NATO, the Defense Department said Friday.

The company will perform work at its facility in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, through July 9, 2022.

USAF obligated $5.1 million in fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance funds at the time of award.

E-3 is derived from the Boeing 707/320 commercial airframe and designed to support command-and-control battle management, surveillance, target detection and tracking operations.
