MEADS Program Approved by National Armaments Directors - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin announced that NATO’s national armaments directors for Germany, Italy and the U.S. recently approved a contract amendment that funds two flight intercept tests of the medium extended air defense system.

The firm is a subcontractor and joint venture partner of MEADS, a multinational joint venture based in Orlando.

The contract calls for a launcher missile characterization test and a sensor characterization test to occur before the MEADS Design and Development contract ends in 2014.

MEADS will conduct the launcher missile characterization test this fall to demonstrate the 360-degree engagement capability of the MEADS launcher.

“We remain focused on executing the flight tests approved by the National Armaments Directors on time and on budget,” said Dave Berganini, president of MEADS International. “Our goal is to demonstrate the advanced capabilities of MEADS, including its open, network-centric architecture, non-proprietary software and plug-and-fight capabilities.“
