The Missile Defense Agency is announcing the award of a cost-plus-award-fee modification to contract F29601-97-C-0001 with The Boeing Co., Seattle, Wash., in support of the Airborne Laser Block (ABL) 2004 effort.  The modification recognizes adjustments of $241,793,312 made in the fiscal year 2004 president’s budget to the ABL Block 2004 Program to account for cost adjustments for the laser, beam control and integration and test efforts with no increase to the potential award fee.  This modification also removes the value of CLIN 0006, Block 2008 aircraft, which will now be procured under a separate contract.  The period of performance for this effort is through June 30, 2005.  The Missile Defense Agency is the contracting activity (F29601-97-C-0001).
