Geocent Supports Boeing’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent Program
 

Geocent is pleased that the U.S. Air Force is moving forward with the technology maturation and risk reduction phase of the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) program. Geocent will support Boeing's efforts on the new intercontinental ballistic missile weapon system for the U.S. Air Force.

"Geocent is honored to be part of this very important and strategic national effort," said Robert A. Savoie, chairman and chief executive officer of Geocent. "We are proud to support Boeing on multiple programs in multiple locations, from both our Huntsville-based Engineering Headquarters and our New Orleans-based Corporate Office and Technology Center."

Boeing is developing its preliminary GBSD design under a $349 million U.S. Air Force contract that was awarded in August.  

Geocent will provide engineering and scientific support for Air Vehicle Equipment, including propulsion, avionics, Guidance Navigation and Control, and missile system software.
