Lockheed Martin has won a $28,273,000 U.S. Army contract to upgrade live-fire range upgrades for Saudi Arabia’s national guard to support the Middle East country’s modernization initiative.
The Army’s program executive office for simulation, training and instrumentation in Orlando, Fla. awarded the contract under the foreign military sales program, the Defense Department said Friday.
Under the deal, Lockheed will update existing ranges and install trajectories on newly-constructed ranges.
Work will occur in Orlando, San Diego and Suwanee, Ga. through Dec. 31, 2014.
The Bethesda, Md.-based aerospace and defense company is also partnering with a Riyadh-based university to research emerging technologies for underwater vehicles.
