Kongsberg Defence Systems (KONGSBERG) has won an order from Lockheed Martin valued at 560 MNOK for deliveries of rudders and vertical leading edges for production lots 9 and 10 (LRIP 9-10) for F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
The contract is a continuation of deliveries from previous production lots (LRIP 3-8) and supports the continued business relationship between KONGSBERG and Lockheed Martin.
“This contract demonstrates KONGSBERG’s continued competitiveness of high end manufacturing and represents the first contractual indication that the ramp up of F-35 aircraft delivery rate is now coming. We are pleased to see the increased work load as an effect of the increased aircraft quantities and we look forward to the continued growth in aircraft quantities going forward”, says Terje Bråthen, Executive Vice President, Kongsberg Defence Systems.
