The Air Force had the largest contract award this in June, with $12 billion going to BAE Systems for the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) weapon services. BAE and Raytheon tied with each other, with each having two contracts landing in the top 10 DoD contracts. And the Army had an advantage over the Navy this month with four on the top 10 list over the Navy’s three. Of course, if you add both Navy and Army together, then the award amounts beat Air Force’s one big winner at the top spot by about $1.5 million.
