Jeff Brody

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) are moving to the next bidding round for a U.S. Air Force competition that seeks to build a new intercontinentinal ballistic missile weapon system.

The service branch said Tuesday it posted a formal solicitation notice for the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent ICBM program.

Both companies won separate technology maturation and risk reduction contracts worth $678M combined in August 2017.

The EMD contract has options for a contractor to produce five lots of the GBSD system and help USAF field the weapon.

The system is intended to replace the LGM-30 Minuteman III missile and designed to adapt to technological changes.
