Boeing has secured a 5-year, $91 million contract with the US Air Force which will allow the aircraft manufacturer to continue guidance and navigation repair work on a variety of US Air Force aircraft.

Since 1996, Boeing has been servicing components for US Air Force aircraft including the B-2 Spirit, B-52 Stratofortress, E-3 Sentry and F-15 Eagle at the Boeing Guidance Repair Center in Heath, Ohio.

The Boeing Guidance Repair Center is responsible for maintaining the readiness and modernization of guidance and navigation systems for U.S. nuclear-capable platforms, as well as non-nuclear capable guidance and control systems, electronics and radio frequency systems, and platform processors. 

It is also home to assembly, integration and test activities for several Boeing production programs, among them the KC-46 tanker, T-7A Red Hawk and the MQ-25 unmanned aircraft system.

“We’ve partnered with the Air Force for 25 years, and we’re happy to continue working alongside them for this critical repair work,” Mike Murasky, site leader for the Boeing Guidance Repair Center said in a statement. 

“We’re committed to continuing to provide the customer with the same level of service they’ve come to expect from us – high-quality products, on schedule and on cost, while remaining flexible to meet their needs.”
