F/A-22 Raptor General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products has been awarded a $10.6 million contract from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for the manufacture of 26 ammunition handling systems with spares for the F/A-22 Raptor aircraft. Assembly work will be performed at General Dynamics’ Saco, ME facility. Program management and system testing will occur in Burlington, VT. This contract extends production through April 2007. The F/A-22 Linear Linkless Ammunition Handling System is the world’s lightest 20mm feed system, featuring state-of-the-art composites and unique gun-feed technologies to provide high reliability at minimum weight. General Dynamics ammunition handling and storage systems equip virtually all modern U.S. front-line fighter aircraft, including the F-16 Falcon, F/A-18 C/D Hornet, F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter currently in development. dBusiness News Charlotte: General Dynamics Awarded $11 Million Contract for F/A-22 Raptor Ammunition Handling Systems
