The company will fly ScanEagle UAVs for the Navy and supply more Apache helicopters to Taiwan.

The Department of Defense awarded Boeing (BA -2.48%) and its subsidiaries two separate contracts on Wednesday worth $27.4 million.

Of the two, the smaller contract for $7.8 million went to Boeing's unmanned aerial vehicle subsidiary, Insitu. This contract extends Boeing's obligation to provide the Navy with operational and maintenance services in support of ScanEagle UAVs, including the capture of electro-optical/infrared and mid-wave infrared imagery, through March 2014.

The larger contract, for $19.6 million, modifies Boeing's previously awarded firm-fixed-price foreign military sales contract for the procurement of Apache Block III AH-64D attack helicopters for Taiwan. According to the DOD announcement, this contract win brings the total cumulative face value of Boeing's underlying contract to $624.5 million.
