Boeing won a $45 million U.S. Air Force contract to upgrade the B-1B bomber's avionics software. Boeing said its engineers in Long Beach, Calif., and Oklahoma City produce upgraded B-1B avionics software every 12 months for the nation's fleet of 67 B-1B long-range heavy bombers. "This contract ensures that B-1B users have the latest software improvements, allowing them to exploit the awesome potential of the bomber in its ever-expanding roles," said Greg Burton, Boeing B-1B program director.
