Lockheed Martin to maintain reconnaissance aircraft systems

US: The US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has awarded Lockheed Martin a foreign military sales contract to support the Republic of Korea's Peace Krypton reconnaissance aircraft system. This contract is valued at approximately USD 9 million."Raising the level of sustainment and support continues to be a critical part of our partnership on the Peace Krypton program. The essential missions of this customer require focused, innovative solutions, which is why we remain dedicated to offering the US Government and the Republic of Korea a full range of logistics and technical capabilities,” said Dr Robert Smith, Vice President of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions.

The Peace Krypton system is used for tactical intelligence and is comprised of militarized business jets and ground stations that process data from the aircraft. Lockheed Martin's sustainment work scope involves maintenance of the aircraft fleet, which includes spare and repair parts, as well as providing support and test equipment for both the aircraft and its fixed and mobile ground stations. Lockheed Martin will also provide software development and software upgrades as needed to modernize the reconnaissance system.
