ARLINGTON (BNS): Boeing has received a contract worth $58.6 million from the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to demonstrate its evolved Multi-Object Kill Vehicle (MOKV) technology.

The  new technology would increase the interceptors' ability to locate and destroy missiles headed toward the United States.

The US Department of Defense awarded the contract, work under which will span for 35 months, on May 12.

"Our MOKV concept gives the Missile Defense Agency flexibility in eliminating threats more efficiently and affordably," said Paul Geery, vice president, Mission Solutions, Phantom Works. "We've created a robust, resilient design that benefits from our extensive experience in advanced seekers."

In 2015, Boeing received an initial study contract from the MDA to design and develop the MOKV concept.

As part of that contract, Boeing recommended technology risk reduction efforts for this next phase under which the new contract has been awarded.
