Boeing Awarded $121M to Produce Navy Torpedo Air Launcher Equipment

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has been awarded a potential eight-year, $121.4 million contract to produce equipment for the U.S. Navy to deploy anti-submarine torpedoes from the P-8A maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft.

The military branch will initially obligate $11.8 million on full-rate production services for the High-Altitude Anti-Submarine Warfare Weapon Capability Air Launch Accessory, according to a Department of Defense notice published Friday.

DOD’s award notice indicates the contract has an initial value of $25.6 million and will reach the ceiling price if all options are exercised.

The Navy tapped Boeing in 2013 to design and build a HAAWC system capable of launching from a high altitude and far from a target.

Under the recent award, the company will manufacture the air launcher platform and perform engineering, hardware repair and direct cost support work.
