Lockheed will also prepare for and respond to price and availability requests, conduct studies, and support the U.S. Navy in development of a technology control plan to address product protection, computer program modifications, and future cooperative development between the U.S. and Japan. Work will be performed in Moorestown and should be finished by March 2010.
