The Boeing Co., Huntsville, Alabama, has been awarded a $39.7 million cost-plus-fixed-fee foreign military sales (Iraq) contract to acquire engineering and technical services necessary to support the Avenger missile system.
     
Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of May 26, 2022. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity (W31P4Q-17-D-0027).

According to Boeing, the fully automated, short-range Avenger air defense system is the Army’s premier shoot-on-the-move air defense weapon. It is a lightweight, highly mobile, easily transportable surface-to-air missile fire unit with eight Stinger missiles in two missile pods. It acquires, identifies, tracks and engages targets (low-flying helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft) from a stationary or moving position.

Mounted on a high-mobility, multipurpose wheeled vehicle, the Avenger can operate in extreme weather conditions. Its infrared system, computer, communications equipment and laser rangefinder locate targets in daylight and at night.
