Boeing (NYSE: BA) will produce Harpoon anti-ship system equipment for Taiwan to fulfill a foreign military sales requirement under a $498.3 million order from the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command.
The firm-fixed-price order calls for the delivery of 100 launcher transporter units, 25 radars and training platforms to the Taiwanese government by December 2028, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
The defense contractor will work on the Harpoon Coastal Defense System launchers at various locations within the U.S., mostly in South Dakota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Missouri and New York.
NAVSEA will obligate $244.2 million at the time of award from FMS funds.
Originally developed for the U.S. Navy, the Harpoon missile uses GPS guidance technology to reach targets on land or at sea.
