ST. LOUIS, Mo. Boeing has won a contract modification to a previous contract -- worth $198 million -- providing for the integration of a ground-control station providing command-and-control capability in support of the MQ-25 aerial refueling unmanned aircraft system for the U.S. Navy.

The MQ-25 UAS -- known as the Stingray -- is Boeing's offering to provide refueling capability for deployed Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets, Boeing EA-18G Growlers, and Lockheed Martin F-35C fighters used from aircraft carriers. 

Work under the terms of the contract will be performed primarily in St. Louis and is expected to be concluded by August 2024.
