Lockheed Prime on Proposed $421M Japan Aegis Upgrade Sale

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is the prime contractor on a proposed $421 million sale of Aegis Combat System upgrades to Japan, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Monday.

The agency said the sale includes modernization and upgrades to Aegis systems on two Atago-class destroyers with the goal of updating ballistic missile defense capabilities.

The sale includes:

  • a weapon system computer program
  • two radar signal processors
  • two display consoles
  • two wall screen and projector systems
  • two video distribution systems
  • two operational readiness testing systems
  • two ship-board electro-optic sensor systems
  • guns and launchers

According to Reuters, Congress has 30 days to block the transaction but such action is rare.

Japan has bought four of the Lockheed-made F-35 jets and associated equipment for nearly $756.5 million and could buy more jets as part of a larger $10 billion purchase agreement.
