EAGAN, Minn., March 28 -- Lockheed Martin has received a $9.2 million contract from Harris Corp. to deliver transceivers for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. The transceivers are a critical component of the JSF mission system, linking the system's electronic processing and fiber optic network.
Harris Corp., under contract to Northrop Grumman to provide common components for the JSF's conventional and short take-off vertical landing variants, competitively awarded the contract to Lockheed Martin's Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Tactical Systems business. Tactical Systems will deliver two different transceivers under the contract from Harris: the large form factor transceiver and the small form factor transceiver. Both components will be delivered by August. Tactical Systems is also responsible for the Integrated Core Processor, which is the aircraft's central computer system, as part of the initial JSF award to Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company.
