Jeff Brody

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has secured a $122.9M contract to provide memory processor devices and digital components for Increment 2 production efforts under the U.S. Air Force's Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Cryptography Upgrade program.

The military service ordered 75 A-4 drawers and eight digital components for the ICU II program via the firm-fixed-price contract, which includes an option for the procurement of 431 more A-4 units, the Department of Defense said Friday.

According to a FedBizOpps summary, the U.S. government intends to equip the Minuteman III weapon system with remote code change and irreversible transformation functions.

The Air Force sought nuclear certified A4 drawers, support equipment, spares, technical data and trainer systems necessary to support the deployment of ICU II hardware through fiscal 2022 and sustainment of MM III ICBM weapon system until 2036.

The service branch obligated $35M on a previously issued undefinitized contract action and is obligating $45.1M on its latest contract award, which definitizes the UCA.

DoD expects the company to finish contract work by Feb. 28, 2022.
