A Kettering manufacturer has captured a $9.5 million Air Force contract for F-16 work.
Starwin Industries LLC has been awarded a $9,554,000 firm-fixed price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for F-16 Bugeye radomes, a device that strengthens the performance of “active electronically scanned array” (AESA) radars on F-16s.
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.
