3rd April 2020 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has been awarded a contract modification to provide three more MQ-25 unmanned refuelling aircraft for the USN, bringing the total order number to seven.

The modification is worth $84.7 million and exercises options for system demonstration test articles, which was stated as part of the original August 2018 deal.

Dave Bujold, Boeing’s MQ-25 programme director, said: ‘The MQ-25 programme is vital in ensuring the Navy can deliver a critical unmanned aerial refuelling capability to the carrier air wing’.

Boeing recently completed the first round of testing for the MQ-25 test asset (known as T1) which involved nearly 30h of flight time at various speeds and altitudes.
