Boeing has been awarded a $7 million contract for the Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) warhead arming devices remanufacture.
This contract provides for the remanufacture of 94 ALCM warhead arming devices. Work is expected to be completed by July 31, 2021, the US department of defense said in a statement Monday.
The AGM-86B/C air-launched cruise missile is long-range subsonic, 3,200-pound self-guided missile carried by a B-52 bomber at high and low altitudes. Armed with a nuclear warhead, it is designated ALCM. With a conventional warhead, it is designated CALCM. The missile electronically “sees” the terrain over which it flies and can travel more than 1,500 miles to hit the target. Boeing began modifying the ALCM inventory from nuclear to nonnuclear warheads in June 1986.
The AGM-86C configuration features a 3,000-pound-class, high-explosive, blast-fragmentation warhead and a Global Positioning System, or GPS, receiver for accurate inertial navigation. The AGM-86D program modifies additional ALCM missiles with an advanced penetrating warhead to quickly provide theater commanders with a long-range weapon to precisely attack an enemy’s facilities. The penetrator warhead allows the missiles to destroy buried or reinforced targets from standoff ranges of hundreds of miles.
Boeing and Safran have agreed to jointly design, build and service Auxiliary Power Units (APUs), creating better value for customers and for both companies. An APU is an onboard engine that is used to primarily start the main engines and power aircraft systems on the ground and, if necessary, in flight
