PALO ALTO, Calif., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Radant Technologies Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI) has received a $4.1 million firm-fixed price contract to support the U.S. Air Force's B-52 aircraft. The approximately two-year contract, which was awarded by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation, calls for new forward nose radomes to replace existing radomes on the B-52 aircraft. These replacement radomes are expected to be higher performance and more supportable than the previous forward nose radomes on the long-range strategic bomber.
Headquartered in Stow, Mass., CPI's Radant Technologies Division has provided radomes for the U.S. Air Force fleet of B-52 aircraft for several years. In 2011, DLA Aviation awarded Radant Technologies a seven-year, $45 million contract to replace aged and unsupportable radomes under the B-52 Radomes Replacement Program.
"The B-52 aircraft is expected to remain a key asset for the U.S. Air Force beyond 2040, and it is critical for its suppliers to be dependable and to provide reliable, state-of-the-art products. CPI Radant Technologies Division has proven that it is up for the challenge and is proud of its 100 percent on-time delivery record for this program," said Tim Smith, president of CPI Radant Technologies Division.
