Marietta, Ga.-based Lockheed Martin Aeronautics gets another $9.67 million worth of Air Force C-5 work – Atlanta Business Chronicle

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Marietta, Ga., has been awarded a $9.67 million task order under a previously awarded Air Force contract.

The $9,671,233 task order resulted from a sole-source acquisition, the Department of Defense said. It is for C‐5 aircraft sustainment engineering services.

Work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas; Marietta, Ga.; and Palmdale, Calif. It is expected to be complete by January 2019.

A combination of fiscal 2018 transportation working capital funds; and operations and maintenance funds in the amount of $9,671,233 were being obligated at the time of award, which was Jan. 25.

The contract work will be managed by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Warner-Robins Air Force Base in Georgia.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics’ Marietta campus also won a $7.6 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for C-5 contractor logistics support services, the DOD said Feb. 8.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, and has a workforce of 25,000. It builds military aircraft used by the United States and more than 70 other countries.

The C-5 Galaxy is one of the largest aircraft in the world and the largest airlifter in the Air Force inventory. The aircraft can carry a fully equipped combat-ready military unit to any point in the world on short notice and then provide the supplies required to help sustain the fighting force.
