22 Jun 09. Raytheon Company and Ultra Electronics Precision Air Systems have teamed to pursue the BRU-69/A Multi-Purpose Bomb Rack (MPBR) program for the U.S. Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command. MPBR is a twin-store, non-pyrotechnic carriage system that will replace several legacy bomb racks currently deployed on the F/A-18 E/F. Advanced on-board avionics will ensure that MPBR is compatible with current and future “smart weapons.” Use of a common, non-pyrotechnic bomb rack will provide substantial life-cycle cost savings. Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC (RTSC), with a nearly 40-year history of bomb rack and missile launcher design, manufacture, and in-service engineering and support, will lead the pursuit as the prime contractor. Ultra will provide the pneumatic energy source that powers this next-generation stores carriage and non-pyrotechnic ejection system. The team has worked together for more than a year to craft a competitive MPBR solution that offers the Navy the best combination of systems engineering, design and production expertise, mature and proven technology, and a track record of delivering cost-effective solutions that meet demanding operational needs.
