WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Boeing has been awarded a $9.9 million delivery order for work on integrating the GBU-56(V) 4/B laser-guided bomb on to the F/A-18 Hornet's weapons platform.
The cost-plus-fixed-fee delivery order against a previously issued basic ordering agreement involves systems engineering and logistic support planning required for the production acceptance test and evaluation of the DSU-42/B precision laser guidance set and the KMU-558 series guidance set on the GBU-56(V) 4/B laser-guided bomb.
The effort also includes integrating that munition on to the F/A-18 weapons platform.
Work will be performed in Missouri, Texas, South Carolina, Minnesota and other locations in the continental United States.
Work is expected to be completed by February 2019.
Naval Air Systems Command is the contracting activity.
