Navy Awards Lockheed $51M Contract Modification for Trident II Missile Production

Lockheed Martin will continue to produce Trident II D5 submarine-launched fleet ballistic missiles for the U.S. Navy and provide support for deployed D5 systems under a  $51.1 million contract modification.

The Defense Department said Wednesday work will primarily occur in California, Florida, Georgia, Washington, Utah, Virginia, Maryland and Georgia through Sept. 30, 2017.

The Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs will obligate the full modification amount from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance funds along with 2017 weapons procurement funds.

Lockheed’s space systems business produces Trident missiles for deployment aboard the Navy’s Ohio-class and the U.K.’s Vanguard-class submarines.
