Boeing has awarded Australia-based Ferra Engineering a contract to build new wing kits aimed at increasing the strike distance of Boeing’s Joint Direct Attack Munition weapon.

The kits are intended to increase the reach of Boeing’s extended range JDAMs by as much as three times so aircrews can deploy the weapon beyond adversaries’ air defenses, Boeing said Wednesday.

“Boeing has been in Australia for 86 years and we have many great local industrial partners doing work across our commercial and defense product lines,” said Dennis Muilenburg, president and CEO of Boeing’s defense, space and security unit.

The company’s JDAM facility is based in St. Charles, Mo.

Ferra won Boeing“™s International Supplier of the Year award in 2011, the same year Australia’s air force became Boeing’s first JDAM ER customer.

Ferra is also a partner Boeing P-8A Poseidon and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet programs.
