Lockheed Martin Wins Foreign Military Sales Contract to Modernize Jordan’s Air Force Infrastructure; John Nikolai Comments

Lockheed Martin Corp. has been awarded a $26 million foreign military sales contract by the U.S. Air Force to modernize the Royal Jordanian Air Force‘s national air command, control, communications infrastructure.

The Bethesda, Md.- based contractor will provide the Kingdom of Jordan with real-time, integrated air pictures for all multiple command centers and remote sites to protect the country’s airspace.

According to Lockheed, the system called Omnyx, will integrate voice, data and sensor communications for interoperability across the Jordanian Air Force as well as other elements of the country’s armed forces.

John Nikolai, director for C4 systems at Lockheed Martin’s mission systems and sensors business, added that the Omnyx system works as a backbone for information flow in command centers and allows the Jordanian military to track and identify aircraft, initiate or monitor airborne engagements and evaluate threats.
