This contract provides for the supply of both left and right Bugeye radomes for the F-16 aircraft, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

Work will be performed in Kettering and is expected to be complete by Jan. 28, 2026.

This award is the result of a competitive acquisition, two solicitations mailed and two offers received, the Defense Department said.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, F-16 Division at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, is the contracting activity.
