Marvin Engineering Contracted for U.S. Navy Aircraft Missile Launchers

Marvin Engineering Co. was recently awarded a US$132,481,869 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. This contract provides for the production and delivery of a maximum quantity of 1,339 BRU-32B/A ejector unit rack assemblies and a maximum quantity of 1,056 LAU-127E/A guided missile launchers to the service branch for use on the F/A-18E/F and EA-18G series aircraft.  Work will be performed in Inglewood, California, and is expected to be completed in September 2027. 
 
The U.S. Naval Air Systems Command will reportedly obligate funds for the firm-fixed-price and indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award upon issuance of individual orders.
 
The BRU-32B/A pneumatic ejector racks are designed to support bomb carriage and release functions aboard fifth-generation fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, according to Marvin Engineering. It is a heavy duty, dual-piston pyrotechnic ejector rack for carriage and release of stores weighing up to 4,200 pounds. Its combat proven design features automatic store sway bracing and allow for 14-inch or 30-inch suspension. The BRU-32B/A is the successor to the earlier BRU-32A/A, the latter of which is integrated on earlier F/A-18A/B/C/D Hornet aircraft.
 
The company designed its LAU-127 suite of missile launchers to carry and release advanced medium range air-to-air missiles from the Growler and Super Hornet vehicles.
