General Electric (NYSE: GE) has received a one-year, $91.6 million contract option from the U.S. Navy to provide 24 full-rate production F414-GE-400 engines for installation into the service branch’s F/A-18E/F aircraft.

The Defense Department said Tuesday the Naval Air Systems Command will obligate the full amount of the exercised option from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 aircraft procurement funds.
