Under the deal, British-based BAE will design, develop, manufacture and sustain the Bomber Armament Tester (or BAT) system for the Air Force bomber fleet.
BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Inc. will conduct engineering and manufacturing development of 90 BAT systems that can be used aboard the B-2A, B1-B and B-52H bombers.
Work will continue through 2027.
