Lockheed Martin Aeronautics will upgrade four of Japan’s F-35 Lightning aircraft after receiving a $21.5 modification to a United States Navy contract, the Pentagon announced in its Thursday digest of military contracts.
Lockheed Martin will produce and install a number of components into the aircraft, and will also provide improvements to related systems engineering products. None of the funds being awarded with the contract will expire at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. The labor will be conducted in Fort Worth, Texas, and should be finished in December 2016.
Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will be given a $66.4 million Missile Defense Agency contract modification that will bring the value of the deal to $955.3 million. Under the addition to the contract, the company will provide a float antenna equipment unit (AEU), AEU transformer, processors, and power unit spares. The labor will be conducted in Woburn, Mass., and should be finished in March 2018.
Raytheon also received a $32.6 million modification to an Army contract for 22 gun turrets, which will be applied to the Marine Corps’ anti-tank vehicles. The labor will be conducted in McKinney, Texas, and should be finished on July 30, 2018.
