Lockheed Martin and Raytheon have formed a team to bid for a contract to build the U.S. Air Force‘s future joint surveillance target attack radar system aircraft, Flightglobal reported Wednesday.

Stephen Trimble writes the companies could integrate a battle management command and control technology derived from Lockheed’s Project Missouri and a Raytheon-designed active array sensor for the JSTARS replacement competition.

Rob Weiss, executive vice president and general manager at Lockheed’s Skunk Works division, told Flightglobal he believes the technology integration will be a “differentiating capability” of the team’s planned aircraft offering.

Lockheed is waiting for the Air Force to decide whether the military service will choose a business or a commercial sized aircraft platform to replace its current JSTARS fleet.

“We're positioned so we can go either direction,“ Weiss added, according to the publication.
