Boeing Subcontracts With Ducommun For F/A-18 Upgrade Parts

The Boeing Company (BA) awarded a sub-contract to Ducommun (DCO) to provide new caution and warning lights as part of an upgrade to the F/A-18 fighter’s cockpit. This is a follow on order to a previous contract. Already three hundred of the Navy and Marine Corp’s advanced aircraft have received this U.S. Navy Caution Panel Warning System (CPWS) Upgrade Initiative.

The F/A-18 has been in service now for over twenty years and due to the delays in the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) F-35 program may have to have a longer life then planned. Continuous modifications and upgrades like the CPWS will make the aircraft perform better, more reliably and longer as parts are replaced and upgraded.
