Strategic Deterrence Systems
Strategic Deterrence Systems integrates Boeing’s support of the land-based leg of America’s nuclear deterrence triad, the Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The company also sustains vital navigational and control systems across the triad (which also involves U.S. Air Force bombers and U.S. Navy Ohio-class submarines).
In October 2016, Boeing responded to a U.S. Air Force solicitation for the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) Technology Maturation & Risk Reduction (TMRR) contract, to partner with the Air Force to develop a new ICBM system. Boeing was one of two companies to be awarded TMRR on Aug. 21, 2017. We are honored to partner with the Air Force on the critical strategic deterrence mission.
Boeing is committed to our partnership with the Air Force, to keeping the United States’ current land-based strategic deterrent safe, secure and reliable, and to the modernization and development of future strategic triad systems that will give the nation a technological leap forward in capability against evolving threats.
