$100M to Support JASSM & WCMD family Weapons, 2011-2016Jun 14, 2011 15:49 UTC by Defense Industry Daily staff
In mid-June 2011, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control in Orlando, FL received a 5-year, not-to-exceed $100 million indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity sole-source contract to provide technical support for the WCMD family of GPS-guided cluster bombs (which can include the CBU-97 Sensor Fuzed Weapon), and the AGM-158 JASSM family of stealthy cruise missiles. Delivery orders under this basic contract may be firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee, or cost-plus-incentive-fee contracts, and will be managed by the USAF’s Air Armament Center/EBJK at Eglin Air Force Base, FL (FA8682-11-D-0155).
The associated FBO announcement corrects some errors in the Pentagon DefenseLINK release, and adds more detail. Lifecycle support includes all efforts related to JASSM, JASSM ER and any JASSM variant, or any WCMD variant, in the areas of system upgrade (i.e. datalink program for JASSM), integration with military aircraft, production improvements, sustainment (including mission planning software, non-warranty repair, and flight test support), management (includes FMS sales efforts, studies and various reports, plus parts obsolescence issues) and logistical support (technical manuals, test kits, technical orders, spares, even support for related simulator modes). The contract covers both US Government and foreign government systems. See the FBO solicitation to find the subcontracting opportunities contact person.
