Queensland company Ferra manufactures JDAM wing kits
Brisbane-based engineering company Ferra is manufacturing Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) wing kits under a contract with Boeing, with the first kits recently delivered to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). The extended range wing kits were developed by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation, and Boeing produced the kits delivered to Australia at Ferra's Brisbane facility.
The range-extending wing kits are expected to almost triple the baseline range of the current JDAM system.
