A joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Raytheon has secured a $56.8 million contract modification to supply containerized rounds, electronics, command launch units for the U.S. Army‘s Javelin man-portable anti-tank missile system.
Javelin Joint Venture will also provide non-recurring engineering services under the modification, the Defense Department said Friday.
The JV developed the system to offer fire-and-forget and medium-range missile capacity for U.S. and international defense clients.
The Army Contracting Command will obligate the full amount of the modification from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 “other” procurement funds.
Work will occur in Tucson, Arizona, through Sept. 30, 2020.
