The latest contract modification for Lockheed Martin suggests Aegis Ashore for Poland will not be completed until 2023.

Lockheed Martin has obtained a $30.61 million sole-source engineering contract modification from the US Missile Defense Agency to support the Aegis Ashore installation in Redzikowo, Poland. 

The modification raises the total cumulative value of the Poland Aegis Ashore Engineering Agent contract to $129.65 million, the US DoD announced on 26 May.

Lockheed Martin will provide engineering and security support, test and site updates, and risk mitigation support for the Polish site.

Work will be carried out in the US and Poland for completion by 30 June 2023.

Aegis Ashore is the land-based version of the USN Aegis combat system.

Since 2016, the US has had an operational Aegis Ashore system in Romania to defend against ballistic missiles.

However, Shephard Defence Insight notes that construction problems mean that the IOC of the Polish installation has been delayed.
