Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control has been awarded a $302.2 million modification to an Air Force contract for the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) program, the U.S. Department of Defense announced in its Thursday digest of contracts.
JASSM is a precision-guided cruise missile featuring a blast-fragmentation warhead, according to Lockheed Martin. The missile uses an infrared seeker and enhanced digital anti-jam GPS. Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will produce the missile and provide system upgrades, integration, and sustainment.
The fixed-price incentive involves foreign military sales to Poland. The labor will be conducted in Troy, Ala., and should be finished by June 29, 2019.
Raytheon will be given a five-year, $68.6 million Navy contract to repair 23 weapons assemblies and 41 shop replaceable assemblies, which go into the F/A-18 combat jet’s Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared System. More than $33 million in working capital funds will be assigned with the contract award, with none of those funds expiring at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. Raytheon was the only company to place a bid on the contract. The majority of the labor will be conducted in McKinney, Texas, with the remaining work taking place in Jacksonville, Fla. and El Segundo, Calif. The work should be completed by December 2018.
Rockwell Collins will be given $26.3 million under an option to a Navy contract for the manufacturing and installation of a Block I modification aircraft kit and Very Low Terminal kit for the E-6B command post aircraft. The company will also provide field support engineering, and operational and maintenance training. None of the firm-fixed-price contract funding will expire at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. The majority of the labor (80) percent will be performed in Richardson, Texas, with the remaining work taking place in Oklahoma City. The labor should be finished in November 2017.
