Kongsberg signs contract for deliveries to F-35 JSF worth 160m NOK

Kongsberg Defence Systems today signed a contract with Lockheed Martin valued at 160 MNOK for deliveries of Rudders & Vertical Leading Edges for Production Lot 8 (LRIP 8) for F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

The contract is a continuation of deliveries from the five previous production lots (LRIP 3-7) and supports the continued business relationship between KONGSBERG and Lockheed Martin.

“We are pleased that we reached an agreement for additional vertical tail leading edges and rudder components for the F-35 Lightning II and it is a testament to the continuing long-term international cooperation between Lockheed Martin and KONGSBERG,” said Susan Ouzts, Lockheed Martin vice president, F-35 International Programs. “KONGSBERG continues to demonstrate the high levels of technical and manufacturing sophistication that are required to compete for work on the F-35, and we expect more F-35 industrial participation for Norway as we continue to move through the Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) phases.”

“This contract demonstrates KONGSBERG's continued competitiveness of high end manufacturing and represents a new significant milestone for our aerostructures business. We are pleased to be a supplier of quality products to the F-35 program, supporting the continuation of our long term cooperation with Lockheed Martin”, said Terje Bråthen, Executive Vice President Aerostructures, Kongsberg Defence Systems.

The contract includes deliveries to about 40 aircraft.
