Boeing Logs Five Years Of On-Time ICBM Guidance Replacement Program Deliveries

Boeing's delivery of the 513th Minuteman III Guidance Replacement Program (GRP) Missile Guidance Set (MGS) last month to the U.S. Air Force marks five years of consecutive on-time deliveries.

"Nothing is more important than meeting customers' expectations," said Charles Dutch, director of Boeing's Minuteman III Guidance Replacement Program. "We will continue to work as a team to deliver these guidance systems on or ahead of our contract schedule requirements."

GRP is one element of the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Prime Integration Contract, led by Northrop Grumman Mission Systems and major subcontractor Honeywell. The program modernizes the nation's Minuteman III guidance system electronics, including hardware and software updates, and extends the service life of the Minuteman III MGS through 2020.

Boeing has been the only U.S. Air Force ICBM guidance system integration contractor for more than 40 years on the Minuteman I-II-III, Peacekeeper, Small ICBM and now GRP.

Boeing has played a key role in ICBM development design, production and maintenance since Minuteman I was conceptualized in 1958. In addition to GRP, Boeing performs ICBM repair activities at its Guidance Repair Center in Heath, Ohio, and is an ICBM Prime team member.
