ST. LOUIS (BNS): Boeing has been awarded a one-year, $2.9 million contract by the US Air Force to develop and validate a modification of the A-10 aircraft's Digital Video Audio Data Recorder (DVADR).

The modification will provide a near-term solution to supportability issues with a major subcomponent in the DVADR system.

The contract is a task order under the umbrella of the A-10 Thunderbolt Life-Cycle Program Support (TLPS) contract that is administered by the Air Force A-10 System Program Office. The contract announced is the sixth A-10 TLPS contract the Air Force has awarded to Boeing.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the Warthog, was introduced into the Air Force inventory in 1976. The twin-engine, single-seat aircraft provides close-air support to ground forces and employs a wide variety of conventional munitions against ground targets.
