Boeing Wins $30 Million Small Diameter Bomb 1 Weapon System Contract
GBU-39B Small Diameter Bomb

Boeing has won a $30 million modification contract to continue to provide life cycle support efforts, such as ancillary engineering and technical, test, production, logistical support for the Small Diameter Bomb I weapon system.

The modification increases the existing contract's maximum ceiling value from $80 million to $110 million, the US department of Defense said in a statement Monday.

Work is expected to be completed by June 19, 2019. The GBU-39B Small Diameter Bomb, or SDB, is an extended range all-weather, day or night 250-pound class, guided munition. The SDB relies on the Global Positioning System to provide navigation to the target. Additionally, its small size allows increased aircraft loadout to achieve multiple kills per sortie and inherently reduces the probability of collateral damage.
