The modification falls under a previously awarded indefinite-quantity/indefinite-delivery contract for life cycle support to Small Diameter Bomb I and increases the potential contract value to $110 million, the Defense Department said Monday.

Work under the modification will occur at Boeing’s facility in St. Louis, Missouri, through June 19, 2019.

Boeing and Saab jointly offer the ground-launched SDB to military customers as part of a teaming agreement signed in 2014.

The weapon is designed to launch from a ground artillery platform.
