Lockheed Martin Corp., Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co., Fort Worth, Texas, is being awarded a $104,734,081 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-10-C-0002) for the procurement and delivery of 83,169 Xilinx field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for the U.S. Air Force (35,842), U.S. Marine Corps (10,517); U.S. Navy (9,517), and the governments of Italy (5,992); Turkey (6,370); Australia (5,952); Norway (4,905); United Kingdom (3,530); the Netherlands (61); and Denmark (483). These FPGAs are required for the manufacture of the low rate initial production Lot VII through full rate production Lot III Joint Strike Fighter aircraft. Work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas, and is expected to be completed in September 2014. Fiscal 2011 Aircraft Procurement, Navy; Fiscal 2011 Aircraft Procurement, Air Force; Fiscal 2013 Operations & Maintenance, Navy; Fiscal 2013 Operations & Maintenance, Air Force; and International Partner funding contract funds in the amount of $104,734,081 will be obligated at time of award of which $70,136,722 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract combines purchases for the U.S. Air Force ($46,384,611; 44.3 percent); U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps ($23,752,211; 22.7 percent); and the governments of Italy ($8,107,089; 7.7 percent); Turkey ($7,593,019; 7.2 percent); Australia ($6,894,676; 6.6 percent); Norway ($6,640,664; 6.3 percent); United Kingdom ($5,132,732; 4.9 percent); the Netherlands ($115,809; .11 percent); and Denmark ($113,370; .10 percent). The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Md., is the contracting activity.
This is the first Long Lead contract I have seen that exceeds the single LRIP cycle, let alone covering 3 LRIP and 3 FRP cycles in one contract.
