Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a $128.5M contract modification from the Missile Defense Agency to continue to develop and provide sustainment support for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense anti-ballistic missile system.
The modification includes the production and delivery of booster spare parts, C2 boost vehicles and related avionics to help maintain fleet and flight test programs, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
The contract action increases the ceiling value from $11.2B to $11.3B.
The agency obligated $65M in research, development, test and evaluation funds for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 and expects work to conclude by Sept. 30, 2022.
The GMD system is part of MDA’s layered ballistic missile defense architecture and works to detect and destroy long-range ballistic missiles during the midcourse flight phase.
