Lockheed Martin Lands Handful of Contracts
Owego Lockheed Martin is being awarded multi-million dollar contracts which should provide work for the Tioga County facility through 2012.
A $142 million award from the U.S. Army to begin production of more Persistent Threat Detection Systems, which the Army began using in 2004, Lockheed said.
The PTDS is a tethered aerostat-based system, capable of staying aloft for weeks at a time to deliver real-time surveillance and actionable intelligence to troops.
The majority of the work on the systems will be performed in Akron, Ohio, with additional work at other locations including Owego.
* A $9 million order for services in support of a Common Data Link Hawklink upgrade for the MH-60R helicopter, the Defense Department said. Services will include production support, testing and more.
The work will be performed in Owego and is expected to be completed in December 2011.
* A $919.6 million contract to be shared with Northrop Grumman Systems, Boeing, DCS Corp. and BAE Systems National Security Solutions. The companies will develop mission planning systems software for warfighters, the Defense Department said.
Lockheed in Owego was named as one of the contract recipients, but more specifics about the funding allocations were not provided. No money has been obligated at this time.
* A $12.7 million contract modification for common cockpit provisioned items in support of the MH-60R and MH-60S helicopter programs, according to the Defense Department.
The work will be performed in Owego and is expected to be completed in July 2012.
