Lockheed Martin Space Systems has been awarded a modification to a previously awarded contract for reentry system/reentry vehicles (RS-RV) subsystem support for the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract modification, valued $386 million, was awarded by Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center located at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The ICBM System Program Office (SPO) is located at Hill AFB.
The contract is part of the U.S. Air Force’s (USAF) Future ICBM Sustainment and Acquisition Construct, which is designed to ensure a safe, secure and reliable Minuteman III weapon system through 2030. The original $109 million contract was awarded in 2014.
The contract work will be performed in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and other various sites, to include Hill Air Force Base, Utah, with an expected completion date of June 4, 2022.
