Boeing to Produce Wideband Global Satellite 11 Under $605M Air Force Contract Modification

Boeing (NYSE: BA) received a $605M U.S. Air Force contract modification to manufacture a global satellite communications satellite designed to facilitate broadband connectivity for military users.

The military service will initially obligate $300M in fiscal 2018 procurement funds for the production of the Wideband Global SATCOM Space Vehicle 11, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The firm-fixed-price modification brings the total potential value of the company’s contact to $2.49B. Work will take place in El Segundo, Calif., through Nov. 20, 2023.

WGS-10 lifted off in March from Cape Canaveral AF Station in Florida aboard a Delta IV rocket.

The WGS constellation supports transmission of sensor and full-motion video data from piloted aircraft via X-band and Ka-band frequencies.
