LockheedLogoLockheed 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.

Under the deal, Lockheed will update existing ranges and install trajectories on newly-constructed ranges.
