Lockheed Martin has awarded Exelis $60 million worth of contracts to supply additional carriage and release systems for the F-35 Lightning II.

The two deals are in the low-rate initial production phase and are a continuation of a pervious contract to deliver the parts and spare equipment, Exelis said Friday.

According to Pete Martin, defense systems director for the Exelis electronic attack & release systems business, the Exelis systems are designed to enhance the aircraft’s capability to carry its mission payload while maintaining its stealth features.

The company said the deliveries of the carriage and release systems for up to 73 F-35s have been scheduled for January 2014 and March 2015.
