Boeing’s Alabama operations on growth trajectory with $1B missile seeker contract

A longtime linchpin of Alabama’s aerospace industry continues to expand in the state, focused on next-generation technology that is charting the future of national defense and space exploration.

Boeing employs more than 3,000 people across a diverse lineup of operations based in Huntsville, where its legacy started 60 years ago with the development of the iconic Saturn V rocket that took the Apollo astronauts to the moon.

Recent company growth in Alabama includes the expansion of the PAC-3 Missile Seeker Program. Under a $1.1 billion U.S. Army contract, Boeing will produce an additional 1,500 of the battle-tested, precision seekers that have protected soldiers around the world for more than 20 years.

Another major effort is ongoing work for NASA’s Space Launch System, the powerful rocket that will return astronauts to the moon and set the stage for future travel into deep space.
