Boeing Secures $81M Navy Deal for Engineering Support of Taiwan’s Harpoon Missile System

Boeing has secured an $81 million contract modification from the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command to provide engineering services for Taiwan’s Harpoon Coastal Defense System.

The award supports configuration efforts for the Harpoon Block II tactical missiles, the HCDS launch system, and Harpoon weapon station test and production equipment.

According to the Department of Defense, the aerospace company will perform most of the work requirements in St. Charles, Missouri, with other tasks to be satisfied in other U.S. locations. The work order is scheduled for completion in August 2026.

The deal complements Boeing’s ongoing commitment to supply Harpoon anti-ship system equipment to the island nation under a $498.3 million foreign military sales order.

Taiwan’s required defense articles for the contract include 100 launcher transporter units, 25 radars and training platforms.

Boeing booked the Navsea contract in March 2022 and must complete delivery by December 2028.

Its latest Navy deal comes as China recently included the defense contractor on its list of “unreliable entities” for supplying arms to Taiwan.

The Chinese sanctions prohibit the organization from investing in China and prevent its executives from entering the country, the Associated Press reported.
