Lockheed Martin will be given a $528.4 million contract modification for interceptors, one-shot devices, and production aid that will benefit the Missile Defense Agency Terminal High Altitude Area Defense Project Office, the United States Department of Defense announced Monday.
The labor will be conducted at locations in Texas, Alabama, and Arkansas. The performance period is scheduled from Jan. 1, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2019.
Lockheed Martin subsidiary Lockheed Martin Aeronautics received two Navy contracts worth nearly a combined $108 million for work related to the F-35 Lightning II fighter jet.
The more lucrative of the two contracts, a $60.4 million modification to a cost-plus-incentive-fee deal, will task the company with providing ground maintenance, depot activation, automatic logistics information system operations and maintenance, and other forms of continued logistics support. The U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, international partners of the U.S., and foreign military sales customers will benefit from the work, which will be conducted at various locations throughout the U.S. The work should be finished in January 2016. More than $23 million of the funds being awarded will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
Under the second contract, a $47.5 million modification to a cost-plus-incentive-fee, fixed-price-incentive-firm deal, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics will provide modification management and unit level augmentation for the F-35A Lightning II. The U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, international partners of the U.S., and foreign military sales customers will benefit from the contract. The U.S. Air Force will be the greatest benefactor, with 51 percent of the funding aiding the warfare service branch. The majority of the work (55 percent) will be conducted in Fort Worth, Texas, with the remaining work taking place throughout the U.S. All of the work should be completed in December 2016.
Boeing will produce four to eight batches of precision laser guided sets for the United States Navy, Air Force, and the governments of Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, and Belgium under a $357.8 million Navy contract.
The precision guided sets are combined with KMU-572 guidance sets to create the Laser Joint Direct Attack Munition system.
The funding for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price contract will be assigned as part of individual delivery orders when the order are made. The majority of the work (68.2 percent) will be conducted in Fort Worth, Texas, with the remaining labor taking place at various locations throughout the U.S. The work should be finished in December 2021.
Boeing was also awarded an $8.6 million option on an Air Force contract for work on all on-orbit Wideband Global SATCOM satellites. More than $1.6 million was assigned at the time of the award. The labor will be conducted at Schriever Air Force Base, Colo., Colorado Springs, Colo, and El Segundo, Calif., and should be finished by Dec. 31, 2016.
Georgia Tech Applied Research Corporation has been given a $24.5 million Air Force contract for research, analysis, systems engineering, development, integration, and evaluation of weapon solutions that the DoD described as “cutting-edge.” The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity cost contract is the result of a sole-source acquisition. The work will be conducted in Atlanta, and should be finished by Dec. 21, 2020.
