Lockheed Gets $353M IDIQ Modification for F-35 Helmet Display Procurement

Jeff Brody

Lockheed Martin’s (NYSE: LMT) aeronautics business will obtain updated helmet mounted display systems for the F-35 program under a $352.7M U.S. Navy contract modification.

The modification will cover the procurement of lots 12 to 14 of third-generation helmet displays and increase the ceiling value of a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Monday.

F-35's Generation 3 display system is designed to help fighter pilots visualize data for situational awareness and features a distributed aperture system for relaying imagery in real time from infrared cameras.

Work under the latest award will take place in Fort Worth, Texas, through December 2020.
