Lockheed Martin has received a potential $36.4 million contract from the Missile Defense Agency to integrate, test and install the Aegis Ashore platform onboard a deckhouse and support facility.
MDA awarded the fixed-price-incentive contract through a competitive procurement process and will obligate the full contract amount from fiscal 2015 defense procurement funds at the time of award, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
Lockheed will perform work in Poland through Dec. 31, 2018, according to DoD.
Aegis Ashore serves as the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System’s ground-based component that works to counter short- and intermediate-range ballistic missile threats.
MDA will deploy the Aegis Ashore platform in Poland in 2018 under the third phase of the Phased Adaptive Approach that seeks to support ballistic missile defense efforts in Northern Europe.
