KC-130J refueling CH-53E Lockheed Martin Services Inc. in Greenville, S.C., is being awarded a $7.1 million cost-plus-fixed-fee order against a previously awarded basic ordering agreement (N00019-05-G-0030) for procurement of five defensive electronics countermeasures (DECM) kits and installation of two kits on the KC-130J in-service aircraft. The KC-130J is an aerial refueling variant of the turboprop C-130J Hercules medium transport aircraft. They are operated by the USAF and US Marine Corps, who value their ability to refuel both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters due to their speed range. Work will be performed in Greenville, S.C., and is expected to be completed in February 2008. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River, MD is the contracting activity.
