The United States Department of Defense’s (DoD) Wednesday digest of military contracts included a $62 million contract given to BAE Systems for aircraft advanced radar warning receivers.
The U.S. Air Force and other foreign military forces will use the receivers included in the firm-fixed-price Defense Logistics Agency contract. The labor will be conducted in New York, and should be finished on Dec. 8, 2016.
Lockheed Martin made out well, as three contracts were awarded to the American aerospace and defense company.
The most lucrative of the three contracts was given to Lockheed Martin Aeronautics—a modified Air Force contract worth nearly $79 million for the sustainment of the F-22 Raptor tactical aircraft. The deal tasks Lockheed Martin Aeronautics with providing inlet coating repair, radar cross section Marietta turntable support, and other inspections, installation, and labor. More than $25 million in fiscal 2015 aircraft procurement, operations, and maintenance funds will be assigned with the award. The work will be conducted in Fort Worth, Texas, and should be finished by Dec. 31, 2016.
The company received a $53 million fixed-price-incentive Army contract for Modernized-Radar Frequency Interferometer (M-RFI) Lot 1 production benefitting Saudi Arabia, Korea, and Qatar. The production includes 34 M-RFI kits, three initial spare sets, and a set of lay-in spares. The only company to place a bid for the contract, Lockheed Martin will perform the work in Oswego, N.Y., and should complete the labor on March 3, 2019.
Lastly, Lockheed Martin will be given $9.6 million for an option exercised on a Navy contract for engineering work and logistic aid benefitting the C/KC-130J aircraft. The upgrades will benefit the U.S. Marine Corps, Marine Corps Reserve (80.3 percent), Coast Guard (12.9 percent), and also Kuwait (6.8 percent).
All funding involved with the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract option will be assigned with delivery orders when they are issued. Nearly 95 percent of the work will be performed in the U.S., with the remaining labor being conducted at Abdullah Al-Mubarak Air Base, Kuwait and Iwakuni, Japan. All of the work should be finished in December 2016.
