Boeing to Continue Providing NAVAIR Laser Munition Sensors - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBoeing Co. has won a $12.5 million U.S. Navy contract to provide the branch with munition sensors, the company announced Tuesday.

The Chicago-based defense and aerospace company will provide 1,116 laser joint direct attack munition sensors to the Naval Air Systems Command.

Debbie Rub, vice president and general manager for missiles and unmanned airborne systems, said U.S. warfighters and international allies have used the sensors for nearly a decade.

The company will deliver the sensors between April 2012 and February 2013.

This is NAVAIR’s third low rate initial production order for sensors and the order follows an $8.3 million order in January for 700 laser sensors.

Those sensors help maintain the Air Force’s laser combat inventory levels, the company said.

The company has built 230,000 of the sensors in St. Charles, Mo. and 26 international militaries use the sensors.

The company recently won an estimated $55.3 million contract to upgrade the Air Force's B-1 lancer aircraft navigation system.
