Lockheed Martin has announced it has won a contract to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) P-3 Orion fleet. Currently, CBP uses 16 Orion P-3 aircrafts equipped with current surveillance systems for the purpose of conducting homeland security missions.
“The Customs and Border Protection program is a great example of the benefits of effective government/industry partnerships, ” said Rob Weiss, Lockheed Martin executive vice president for Global Sustainment. “Our priority is to provide all of our customers with integrated life-cycle solutions that ensure operational effectiveness and readiness at best value.”
The one-year contract has the option for nine more additional year and if all options are exercised it could be worth up $821 million.
