[Avionics Today 08-28-2015] The Naval Air Systems Command is awarding Lockheed Martin an $89 million modification to a previously awarded cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for the F-35A. The modification provides for the system development and demonstration Phase I Increment 2, for the first aircraft arrival and initial operations in support of the F-35A Conventional Take-Off and Landing (CTOL) air system for the government of Israel. 

The modification includes the development and demonstration, integration and sustainment planning for the Israel F-35A CTOL air system. Lockheed Martin expects to complete work on the contract by March 2020. Foreign military sales funds, in the amount of $10 million, are being obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
