The U.S. Air Force has indicated its intent to solicit design proposals from Boeing (NYSE: BA), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) for a hypersonic cruise missile technology that can be launched from a fighter or a bomber aircraft.

The service branch is asking all three contractors to submit statements that will describe their capabilities to build and integrate a solid rocket booster-powered missile system, according to a presolicitation notice posted Wednesday.

USAF expects to award 15-month contracts in the first quarter of the government’s 2021 fiscal year and noted that each contract will include systems requirement and preliminary design review efforts.
