Lockheed Martin received a $117.1M delivery order modification to provide F-35 air vehicle spares.
The company will deliver a deployment and afloat spares package and related consumables as part of the modification awarded by Naval Air Systems Command, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
“Lockheed Martin Corp., Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co., Fort Worth, Texas, is being awarded a $117,101,550 modification (P00004) to a firm-fixed-price delivery order (N0001918F0584) previously placed against basic ordering agreement N00019-14-G-0020.
This modification provides for air vehicle initial spares to include a deployment spares package, afloat spares package, and associated consumables to support air vehicle delivery schedules for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft in support of the Air Force and Marine Corps.

This order combines purchases for the Air Force ($88,383,883; 75 percent); and Marine Corps ($28,717,667; 25 percent). The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.”
Seventy-five percent of purchases are for USAF and the remaining 25 percent are for USMC.
The Pentagon expects the company to fulfill the orders by August 2023.
