Lockheed Martin has received a $29.5 million contract modification to produce PAC-3 missiles for a foreign military sale to Qatar.
The modification supports Qatar's order for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles and a missile segment enhancement task order for a planned flight test.
The U.S. Department of Defense did not identify where work on the contract modification would be performed, but estimates the work will be complete by September 2021. The Army Contracting Command in Redstone Arsenal, Ala., is listed as the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin markets the Patriot Advanced Capability-3, or PAC-3, as the world's most effective air and missile defense interceptor. The solution has been sold to ten international customers, and can be deployed using THAAD launchers.
Bechtel selected for Naval nuclear propulsion components
The Navy uses nuclear propulsion capabilities to power a variety of its vessels, including submarines and aircraft carriers. The solution allows ships to operate by drawing power from a small nuclear power plant installed on the vessel.
The U.S. Department of Defense did not provide an estimated date of completion for the project, but did disclose the work will be performed in Monroeville, Penn., and Schenectady, N.Y.
Bechtel received $205 million in Fiscal 2016 shipbuilding and Fiscal 2017 procurement funding at the time of the award. The contract was not procured competitively. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C., is listed as the contracting activity.
