Lockheed Receives EDM Contract Option

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), who is developing the Airborne, Maritime/Fixed Station Joint Tactical Radio System (AMF JTRS) has received a contract option to increase the number of engineering development models (EDM) by 60 percent.

Additional equipment is being developed to support early integration and testing of a revolutionary tactical network that will provide warfighters in the air, on land and at sea with secure, interoperable communications.

The Lockheed Martin team includes BAE Systems, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon. This exercised contract option is valued at $17.7M.

“Exercising this option means that Small Airborne EDMs can be delivered concurrently to the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and AMF JTRS System Integration Labs, ” said Jim Quinn, vice president, Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Services-Defense. “This will enable early assessment of network capability, which will help reduce risk for ground and flight testing.”
