The Bethesda, Md.-based contractor will develop the data farm for the Joint Strike Fighter U.S. Reprogramming Laboratory, which will be located at Eglin Air Force Base.
The data farm will store software and data from F-35 test missions by interfacing with the lab’s mission equipment.
Ninety-five percent of the work under the modification will occur in Fort Worth, Texas and the rest in Orlando, Fla.
The Pentagon expects work to finish in November 2014.
Lockheed is the prime contractor for the Joint Strike Fighter program and delivered two jets to the Marine Corps in January.
