Lockheed Lands $386M Contract Modification to Support Air Force ICBM Re-Entry System

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has received a potential $386 million contract modification from the U.S. Air Force to continue support work on the military branch’s intercontinental ballistic missile system.

The Defense Department said Wednesday Lockheed’s space systems business will support the re-entry systems and vehicle subsystems of the Minuteman III ICBM.

USAF awarded the company a potential $452 million contract in June 2014 to help sustain hardware and software components of the Minuteman III re-entry subsystem.

DoD noted the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center is the contracting activity and the service branch did not obligate funds at the time of award.

Contract work will occur through June 4, 2022, in Pennsylvania and other locations such as the Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
