Lockheed Wins Potential $928M Air Force IDIQ to Design, Build Hypersonic Strike Weapon

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a potential $928 million contract to design, develop, integrate and test a hypersonic conventional strike weapon that can launch from bomber and fighter aircraft platforms.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management received three offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that will also include engineering and logistics planning services, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

USAF will use fiscal 2018 research, development, test and evaluation funds on the first task order.

Lockheed’s space business will perform contract work in Huntsville, Alabama.

The service branch wants to adopt an HCSW system equipped with global positioning and inertial guidance systems and government-furnished warheads, according to a FedBizOpps summary.

HCSW will be designed to strike fixed and relocatable surface targets within an anti-access/area denial environment at hypersonic velocity.
