DTN News - DEFENSE NEWS: Boeing Receives US Air Force F-22 Mission Planning System Contract
(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - September 13, 2011: The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has received a contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide mission planning support for the F-22 Raptor.

The order, valued at up to $24 million if all options are exercised, was awarded under the Air Force's Mission Planning Enterprise Contract-II (MPEC-II). Boeing is one of five contractors selected in June 2010 for MPEC-II, an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity program with an approximate total value of $920 million over 10 years. The MPEC-II contract provides for the extension and sustainment of mission planning software, services and solutions.

Under the new contract, Boeing will continue development and integration of the existing F-22 Mission Planning Environment (MPE), which provides the ability to interactively plan and validate missions. The MPE gives F-22 crews a full range of mission information, from preflight data reports to postflight debriefing materials.

"Our current support of the F-22 program helped us better understand the Air Force's mission planning requirements," said Mark McGraw, Boeing vice president for Training Systems and Services. "We will continue to work together to improve the integration and testing of mission planning products throughout the MPE development lifecycle."

The F-22 is built by Lockheed Martin in partnership with Boeing and Pratt & Whitney. Boeing supplies the aircraft’s wings and aft fuselage; integrates and tests the advanced avionics; and has responsibility for pilot and maintenance training systems.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is one of the world's largest defense, space and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world's largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $32 billion business with 64,000 employees worldwide. Follow us on Twitter: @BoeingDefense.
