F-35A: they mean these Lockheed Martin has selected Terma A/S, Grenaa to supply conventional edges for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter family’s high-tech carbon-fiber horizontal stabilizers. Terma won the selection in international competition on a best value basis, and the project represents a potential turnover value of approximately US$ 50 million. Terma has participated in the Lockheed Martin team designing structural parts since 2003, based on the use of advanced composite materials. Denmark is also being courted by Saab/BAE with an offer for the JAS-39 Gripen fighter instead, some of which have been declared as surplus by Sweden and placed on the second-hand market. Within the F-35 program, meanwhile, Terma-related firms have been selected for the design and manufacture of: * The Gun Pod for 2 of the 3 variants of the aircraft (F-35B STOVL and F-35C Carrier-launched, which lack internal guns) * Weapons Pylons * Composite panels for the Airframe * Test Pods and test equipment * Radar components
