BAE lands Boeing contract

By Traci DeLore


ENDICOTT — BAE Systems won a contract to develop and manufacture the actuator control unit for the Boeing KC-46A tanker.

The contract is for the design, development, test, and production of the control unit, which provides the control interfaces necessary for movement of the aerial refueling boom.

BAE’s Endicott facility will conduct engineering and development work on the program with manufacturing at the BAE Systems facility in Ft. Wayne, Ind.

“With this award, BAE Systems’ role in the KC-46A tanker contract has expanded, reflecting the teamwork, dedication, and innovation we bring to our partnership with the Boeing Company,” Jim Garceau, deputy general manager of BAE Systems Communication and Control Solutions, said in a release announcing the contract.

Boeing previously selected BAE to provide its interior control panel for the KC-46A in 2011 and named BAE as Boeing’s Supplier of the Year for 2012.
