Boeing has been awarded a $10 million modification contract to supply Harpoon Block II Missiles to Saudi Arabia.
The contract provides for obsolescence redesign efforts in support of the production and delivery of AGM-84 Harpoon Block II Missiles for the government of Saudi Arabia, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday.
The Harpoon is capable of executing both land-strike and anti-ship missions. To strike targets on land and ships in port, the missile uses GPS-aided inertial navigation to hit a designated target aimpoint.
It also led to the development of the standoff land attack missile (SLAM) and subsequently the SLAM expanded response (SLAM-ER).
Harpoon Block II incorporates key guidance technologies from two other Boeing weapons programs — the low-cost, integrated global positioning system/inertial navigation system (GPS/INS) from the Joint Direct Attack Munition and the software, mission computer, GPS antenna and receiver from the SLAM-ER. Boeing has delivered more than 7,000 Harpoon missiles.
The 500-pound blast warhead delivers lethal firepower against a wide variety of land-based targets, including coastal defense sites, surface-to-air missile sites, exposed aircraft, port/industrial facilities and ships in port.
Work is expected to be completed in August 2019.
