Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a $21.6 million contract to install new chips in primary flight displays for the U.S. Air Force‘s C-130J aircraft, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Friday.
John Keller writes Lockheed will help the Air Force update the display graphics and data processors that work to provide situational awareness for Super Hercules pilots.
Lockheed will perform work in Marietta, Ga. and is scheduled to complete the upgrade in September 2015, according to the report.
Fifteen percent of the contract covers foreign military sales to Israel, Kuwait and Norway.
An L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) business unit manufactures the color multi-functional display units on board the C-130J, Keller writes.
