Lockheed Martin Wins Maintenance Pact
Lockheed Martin was awarded a five-year, $60 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide continued depot maintenance support for LANTIRN navigation and targeting pods at the Lockheed Martin Warner Robins Worldwide Depot. Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will operate the Worldwide Depot at Warner Robins Air Force Base, Ga., through 2014. LANTIRN navigation and targeting pods provide aviators with enhanced range, resolution and reliability, according to the company. The extended range version, the LANTIRN Extended Range ER, allows aircrews to operate in daylight or darkness, at mission altitudes from sea level to 40,000 feet. The LANTIRN ER od is deployed on the U.S. Navy S-3B, and is integrated and tested on the P-3.
