Boeing has won a $1.2 billion US Air Force contract for its new E-7A Wedgetail design to replace the venerable E-3 AWACS Early Warning Aircraft, the company and Pentagon announced.

“The Boeing Co., Seattle, Washington, was awarded a not-to-exceed $1,200,000,000 undefinitized contract action for the E-7A Rapid Prototype program,” the Defense Department said in a press release on Tuesday.

In a separate release, Boeing said it will begin development of two new US variants of the E-7 Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft.

The Pentagon said work will be performed in Seattle, Washington and is expected to be done by August 2024.
