Boeing (NYSE: BA) has submitted its proposal for the Missile Defense Agency’s Next-Generation Interceptor program and offered a design that builds on the company's six decades of experience in weapons systems and strategic missile development.

Norm Tew, vice president and general manager of missile and weapon systems division of Boeing’s defense, space and security business, said in a statement published Wednesday the company’s proposal builds on technologies and prior investments to offer a technical approach to deter, outpace and defeat rapidly changing threats.

Tew, who also serves as Huntsville site senior executive, added the company is leveraging its mission knowledge to design, build and deliver a missile defense capability to the MDA in support of the warfighter.

MDA plans to use NGI to support its deterrence strategy and protect the U.S. from intercontinental ballistic missile threats. The agency expects to award the NGI contract later this year.

A solicitation for the NGI competition was issued in April.
