Tapestry selected for Weapon Planning Software
Boeing, through its subsidiary Tapestry Solutions, has received a 10-year contract from the US Air Force to provide Weapon Planning Software (WPS) for aircraft and weapons platforms used by US military and allied forces, the company announced on 28 May.
The mission planning software is designed to help military customers plan every detail of a mission, including routes, threats and points for weapons launches.
The award, worth $259 million, includes the development, enhancement and support of the WPS suite – a core component of the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) architecture, which enables collaborative mission planning and data sharing capabilities between military services.
The WPS suite supports JMPS requirements related to precision-guided munition planning for A-10, B-1, B-2, B-52, F-15E, F-16, F-22, F/A-18 and F-35 operational units worldwide.
