Boeing Receives US Air Force Mission Planning Enterprise Contract-II

ST. LOUIS, June 10, 2010 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has been awarded the U.S. Air Force's Mission Planning Enterprise Contract-II (MPEC-II) to provide software management, development, integration and services for mission planning systems.

MPEC-II is a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with a $1 billion total value over 10 years. As an awardee, Boeing will be eligible to bid on contracts under the MPEC-II umbrella over the life of the program.

"Our strong mission-planning program performance will continue to provide our military customers with the solutions they need, on cost and on schedule."
