This strategic partnership further enhances this powerful industry team to provide a system that will drive cost-savings, schedule and performance efficiencies for the U.S. Air Force.

"We are extremely pleased to combine forces with the Lockheed Martin-led team," said Ralph Pollitt , senior vice president of SNC's Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) business area. "We look forward to contributing to the team's success by applying decades of experience in modifying and certifying commercial and military aircraft for a wide-variety of users around the globe."

Lockheed Martin is the lead systems integrator for the program, while Raytheon brings its experience with ground surveillance, ISR systems, and JSTARS communications. Bombardier will provide its ultra-long-range Global 6000 business jet platform, which is less expensive to operate than modern airliners and is uniquely suited to the JSTARS Recap mission.

"SNC shares our team's vision and commitment to our warfighters," said Andrew Adams , vice president of Advanced Systems, Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. "Together we will deliver a system that offers the optimum solution – quickly and affordably."
