Lockheed Martin has won a contract with a total estimated value of $7 billion for F-22 sustainment.
This contract provides for comprehensive F-22 air vehicle sustainment. The contract has a five-year base ordering period with work expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2027, the US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.
According to Lockheed Martin, there are two main areas of F-22 sustainment work include: RAMMP, or the Reliability and Maintainability Maturation Program: In RAMMP, the company is constantly inspecting data from the field of operations and engineering solutions to increase aircraft availability for combat.
Modernization Line: The Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, houses the only current F-22 Modernization line, or Mod Line. The U.S. Air Force and Lockheed Martin integrate the latest system capabilities to bolster the Raptor’s asymmetric advantage over current and potential adversaries.
Other sustainment activities include: Engine Maintenance: The Pratt & Whitney F119 engines are designed to allow standard flight line maintenance using just six common tools available at commercial hardware stores.
Integrated Maintenance information System IMIS: This system enables our team to work off a centralized network that consolidates maintenance and repair data worldwide. Maintainers can literally plug their laptop computer into the jet, log completed maintenance, and plug their computer back into the system to update the global database instantaneously.
The US Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin a contract to provide sustainment and upgrades for its fleet of 683 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP). Valued at up to $961 million, the five-year, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract allows the Air Force to place orders for logistics, spares, software and sensor enhancements, among other activities
