Lockheed Martin receives $352M contract modification for F-35 helmet
- September 26, 2019
Lockheed Martin has received a $352.6 million contract modification for the procurement of Generation III helmet mounted display systems (HMDS) for US Navy’s F-35 program.
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.
