Lockheed Martin to exercise Option Year Two for Aegis development sites

10th June 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $70.17 million contract modification to exercise its second year of options for support of Aegis development, test site operations and maintenance.

Naval Sea Systems Command is the contracting agency. The modification combines work which will be carried out for the USN and the governments of Japan, Norway and South Korea under the FMS programme.

Lockheed Martin will provide continued technical engineering, configuration management, associated equipment supplies, quality assurance, information assurance and other operational requirements.

The company will be responsible for planned maintenance of Aegis weapon system upgrades to USS Ticonderoga (CG-47) and USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51), in addition to Aegis ballistic missile defence and FMS agreements.

Work is due to be completed by June 2021 with approximately $1.88 million of funding for the programme due to expire at the end of FY2020.
