Boeing wins MOKV contract

29th May 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has been awarded a $58.6 million, 35-month contract from the US Missile Defense Agency to demonstrate its Multi-Object Kill Vehicle (MOKV) technology, the company announced on 23 May.

The MOKV increases interceptors’ ability to locate and destroy an incoming missile before it hits its target.

Paul Geery, VP of Boeing's Phantom Works Mission Solutions, said: ‘Our MOKV concept gives the Missile Defense Agency flexibility in eliminating threats more efficiently and affordably. We’ve created a robust, resilient design that benefits from our extensive experience in advanced seekers.’

Kill Vehicles are platforms designed to counter the threat of long-range ballistic missiles.  In 2015, Boeing received an initial study contract from the Missile Defense Agency to design and develop the MOKV concept. Under the contract, Boeing recommended technology risk reduction efforts for next phase.

Work will be carried out in Huntsville, Alabama and Huntington Beach, California.
