Boeing Satellite Systems Incorporated has been awarded a $14 million contract. The primary objective of the program is to carry out Phase 2 of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Fast Access Spacecraft Testbed (FAST) program.
The Boeing Company has received a contract from the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) services using the ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system. The contract has a potential value of $250 million.
The Boeing Company has been awarded a $38 million contract to develop and test a nonlethal, high-power microwave (HPM) airborne demonstrator for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory's Counter-Electronics High-Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project.
The Boeing Company and the Australian government demonstrated the ability to simultaneously command and control three robot aircraft from an airborne command platform. The demonstration featured three ScanEagle unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) controlled from a Royal Australian Air Force Wedgetail 737 airborne early warning and control aircraft. Operating 120 miles from the Wedgetail, the ScanEagles were assigned tasks such as area search, reconnaissance, point surveillance and targeting. The aircraft demonstrated extended sensing; persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; and the transmission of real-time video imagery of ground targets.
The U.S. Air Force is awarding a not-to-exceed $30 million contract to Engineering, Operations and Technology-Boeing Research and Technology to provide support for the Versatile Affordable Advanced Turbine Engines (VAATE) program.
