USA: Lockheed Martin Gets USD 12.6 Million Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Baseline Contract


The Missile Defense Agency is awarding Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors, Moorestown, N.J., an unpriced change not-to-exceed $12,600,000 under contract HQ0276-10-C-0001. A cost-plus-incentive-fee/cost-plus-award-fee with technical schedule performance incentives modification is contemplated.

The modification accounts for schedule and within scope adjustments to the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Baseline 4.0.1 development schedule, and accounts for the changes to the installation of the computer program aboard an Aegis cruiser.

The performance period for this contract line item number under which this effort will be performed is from June 30, 2010 through March 31, 2012. Contract definitization is expected to be completed by Nov. 4, 2011. Fiscal 2011 research, development, test and evaluation funds will be used to fund this effort. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This is not a foreign military sales acquisition. The Missile Defense Agency, Dahlgren, Va., is the contracting activity.
