Boeing has been awarded a $264 million worth contract to provide engineering support services for the MH-47 helicopter in support of U.S. Special Operations Command, the Department of defense announced Wednesday.

The contract will cover all labor, services, personnel, data, transportation, equipment, facilities and materials required to accomplish the work and perform engineering tasks, the statement says.

The MH-47 helicopter is mainly intended to operate at night and in adverse weather conditions. It flies fast and very close to the ground, in order to avoid detection by enemy radars. Also flying low is a good way to avoid enemy missiles.

Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The first task order of the contract in the amount of $120,497 is funded with fiscal 2017 procurement funds and is multiyear.

All subsequent task orders shall be funded with appropriate funding. This contract has a five-year ordering period. The majority of the work will be performed in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, the statement added.
