Raytheon has been awarded $200 million for the Small Diameter Bomb II Life Cycle Support Contract III.
This provides lifecycle support work related to the GBU-53/B SDB II/StormBreaker and its variants, including engineering and manufacturing development integration, production, sustainment, testing, obsolescence analysis and management, logistics support, testing, training, upgrades, and software updates.
Additionally, studies and analysis related to current and future expansion of its system performance, simulations, modelling, test hardware, technical support, aircraft integration activities, and procurement of all associated test hardware to support the activities and repair of non-warranted assets will be procured under this contract.
Technical support for the SDB II system facilitates engineering, management fielding and logistical tasks required to ensure technical baselines remain current and effective and that future growth requirements remain feasible.
Work will be performed at Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be completed by 30 September 2024.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center based at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida is the contracting activity for the award.
