B-52s to get weapons systems modernization


Recommended Posts


Weapons systems used by U.S. Air Force B-52 bombers are being modernized over an eight-year period under a $11.9 billion contract to Boeing.

The U.S. Air Force said the sole-source, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity award includes acquisition and sustainment activities in support of weapons modernization.

"This B-52 modernization contract will include several delivery orders over an eight-year period," Boeing added in a news release. "The Air Force announced a contract ceiling of $11.9 billion. This is a contracting vehicle that will allow engineering sustaining contracts, studies, production and other activities to occur in support of the B-52.

"No funds were committed with this contract announcement. We expect our first delivery order to be awarded on Sept. 30."
