F35United Technologies Corp. company Pratt & Whitney has selected IHI Corp. to supply engine components for the F-35 fleet of the Japanese military.

The firms also teamed up for industrial participation contracts to perform in-country final assembly of F-35 engines and additional work on the system, Pratt & Whitney said Wednesday.

Japan’s Ministry of Defense ordered the conventional takeoff and landing variant F35A under a U.S. foreign military sale transaction.

Bennett Croswell, president of Pratt & Whitney’s military engines business, said the company has worked with IHI for more than three decades.

The F-35 is built with sensors that work to detect ground-based and airborne threats and the fighter is intended to operate in tactical environments.
