Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a spot on a potential eight-year, $499 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to research and develop new aerospace vehicle technologies for warfighters.

The Defense Department said Thursday Lockheed will support the Aerospace Systems Air Platform Technology Research program in Fort Worth, Texas, through 2025.

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and Aurora Flight Sciences were initially awarded positions under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Six proposals were submitted to the Air Force Research Laboratory for the shared IDIQ through a competitive procurement process.

The obligated amount of $100,000 to each contractor is from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 research and development funds.
