The agreement between the U.S. Air Force and Boeing enables the company to provide 571 remanufactured rotary switches in the air-launched cruise missiles, according to a Pentagon news release.

Work will occur in Heath, Ohio, and is expected to be complete by May 2025.

The total amount of the contract will be obligated to Boeing at time of award from the fiscal 2017 missiles procurement funds.
