Lockheed Martin and Airbus have agreed to team up to meet the aerial refueling requirements of U.S. defense agency clients.

“Reliable and modernized aerial refueling is an essential capability for our customers to maintain their global reach and strategic advantage,” Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed chairman, president and CEO, said in a statement published Tuesday.

Hewson noted the partnership aims to deliver refueling services to the U.S. Air Force to help the service “meet 21st century security challenges.”

Both companies will explore fee-for-service framework and other aerial refueling opportunities for the Airbus A330 multirole tanker aircraft under the memorandum of agreement.

Lockheed will combine its experience in aircraft manufacturing, systems integration, overhaul and maintenance with the European aerospace firm's tanker expertise.
