Boeing has contracted BAE Systems to supply vehicle control and detection systems to operate the former's MQ-25 aerial refueling drone for the U.S. Navy.

BAE will provide the Vehicle Management Control and Identification Friend or Foe systems to support

Boeing's contract with the Navy to deliver four initial MQ-25 unmanned aerial systems by 2024, BAE said Monday.

The vehicle management platform enables the user to control the drone's overall flight functions while the IFF works to identify both ally and adversary vehicles.

Corin Beck, director of BAE's military aircraft systems division, said the company's more than 40-year partnership with Boeing has resulted in the delivery of the former's high-integrity fly-by-wire, IFF and other modernized avionics products.
