Boeing gains extra FMS contract for Saudi missiles
Boeing is providing Saudi Arabia with support materiel for the procurement of 36 data link pods and containers for the Stand-Off Land Attack Missile Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), the US DoD announced on 10 June.
Work on the $78.36 million FMS contract modification from Naval Air Systems Command will be completed by December 2026.
The modification exercises an option in support of the SLAM-ER obsolescence redesign programme for Saudi Arabia, the DoD added.
In May 2020, Boeing received a $1.97 billion FMS contract to provide non-recurring engineering associated with the SLAM-ER obsolescence redesign effort, as well as the production and delivery of 650 SLAM-ER missiles for Saudi Arabia.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the AGM-84H SLAM-ER has a 500lb warhead, an IR sensor system, a data link and a modified GPS receiver. The missile employs numerous operating modes which make it effective against a broad range of targets.
