Boeing Wins up to $2.11 Billion in Navy F-18 and EA-18G Fighter Contracts

Boeing was one of the biggest winners in last night's announcement of defense contracts awarded by the Pentagon. Out of the 38 contracts awarded, and $7.14 billion in total value, Boeing claimed four wins -- likely to yield revenues worth $2.11 billion in total.

Boeing's biggest win of the day was a $1.94 billion contract to supply the U.S. Navy with 38 F/A-18E full rate production 11 Lot fighter-bombers and 21 EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft. Additionally, Boeing will deliver to the government of Australia 12 more Growlers in a deal more than a year in the making. All of these deliveries should be complete by December 2016.

  • An undefinitized (i.e., final price not yet set) contract action to produce up to $22.2 million worth of F/A-18E/F Infrared Search and Track Engineering Development Model systems and support equipment for the U.S. Navy by September 2015.
  • And finally, an $11.5 million contract to perform E-3 Engineering Services work for the U.S. Air Force, the governments of France, Saudi Arabia, and the United Kingdom, and for NATO. This contract will run through May 31, 2017.
