Kearfott Books $82M Air Force Award for B-2 Navigation System Repairs

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Astronautics Corporation of America subsidiary Kearfott an $82.12 million sole-source contract to repair navigation systems on B-2 Spirit heavy strategic bombers.

The defense equipment manufacturer will work on the B-52 inertial measurement unit and attitude motion sensor set at its facility in Pine Brook, New Jersey, through June 29, 2026, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

According to a report, the IMU serves as the B-2’s navigation system computer that relies on data provided by AMSS ring laser gyro inertial navigation platform, among others.

Kearfott is a subcontractor for the IMU and the manufacturer of the AMSS.

The Air Force Sustainment Center at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma sole-sourced the requirement to Kearfott and did not obligate any fund on the award.
