USA: Lockheed Martin Signs Aegis Ballistic Missile Contract Modification
Moorestown-based Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training has signed a USD 13.6 million modification to Aegis Ballistic Missile contract.
Following this deal, the contractor will support advanced concepts initiatives by the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Program Office to identify technology for introduction into present and future Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Baselines/Spirals.
Aegis BMD ships on Ballistic Missile Defense patrol, detect and track ballistic missiles of all ranges – including Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and report track data to the missile defense system.
Lockheed Martin will perform the work, which is expected to be completed by June 30, 2014, in Moorestown, N.J.
