Boeing to support development of Saudi SLAM-ER
Boeing has secured an $8 million contract modification to continue with first-phase design, maturity, analysis and test planning for Stand-Off Land Attack Missile Expanded Response (SLAM-ER) production.
The contract will be implemented in support of an FMS deal with the Saudi government.
However, there is no localised industrial workshare in the kingdom, as work will be carried out at locations across the US including Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Michigan and Missouri.
The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2020.
US Naval Air Systems Command is overseeing implementation of the contract.
