Boeing has been awarded a $3.2 billion contract to provide Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) tailkits to the US Air Force.
Contractor will provide JDAM strap-on inertial guidance kits with the capability to receive guidance updates from Global Positioning Systems to increase weapon accuracy for conventional inventory bombs, US department of defense said in a statement Wednesday.
The undefinitized contract action was awarded on Oct. 30, 2014, at a maximum amount of $1.7 billion. That amount has since increased by $1.4 billion due to warfighter demand and to replenish depleted inventories.
Work is expected to be complete by Sept. 29, 2020.
