Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a $152.5M contract from the U.S. Navy to update a sensor technology designed to help F/A-18E/F Super Hornet pilots locate targets at a long distance.
The company will design, develop, integrate and test the Block II Infrared Search and Track system as part of an engineering change phase, the Defense Department said Friday.
Work will occur through December 2021 in Orlando, Fla., and St. Louis, Miss.
The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate $13M at the time of award from the service branch’s fiscal 2018 research, development, test and evaluation funds.
Boeing received an $89M contract last year to conduct initial efforts under the Super Hornet IRST Block II integration project.
