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.

Work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas (24.4 percent); El Segundo, California (9.1 percent); Owego, New York (8.6 percent); Samlesbury, United Kingdom (7.2 percent); Cheltenham, United Kingdom (6.2 percent); Nashua, New Hampshire (5.8 percent); Torrance, California (5.5 percent); Orlando, Florida (4.9 percent); Cedar Rapids, Iowa (3.7 percent); San Diego, California (3.6 percent); Phoenix, Arizona (3.1 percent); Melbourne, Florida (3.1 percent); Irvine, California (2.5 percent); North Amityville, New York (2.4 percent); Windsor Locks, Connecticut (2.2 percent); Baltimore, Maryland (2.2 percent); Papendrect, The Netherlands (1.9 percent); Rolling Meadows, Illinois (1.8 percent); and Alpharetta, Georgia (1.8 percent).

Work is expected to be completed in August 2023. Fiscal 2017 aircraft procurement (Air Force and Marine Corps) funds in the amount of $117,101,550 will be obligated at time of award, all of which will expire at the end of the fiscal year.

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.

Lockheed received a separate $108.7M order in late February to help modify and refurbish F-35 air systems for domestic and foreign military sales customers.

True, but seeing as Tornado and the Harrier GR7/9 were both multinational projects themselves, and the Typhoon which was the previous fast jet procurement project was also a multinational project, it was always going to be a stretch to convince politicians during the 1990s when there was no air threat to speak of to invest in a UK only fast jet project. Not saying we couldn’t do it, but given that we haven’t successfully made any aircraft by ourselves for 4 decades and the last things we tried our hands at were the Nimrod bodge ups (both Nimrod AEW and… Read more »


An apposite but cruel diagnosis…are you the Marquis de Sade?


I can see why you might think that but no, I am the Marquis of Granby, the pub that rides a horse!
