The Missile Defense Agency has awarded Lockheed Martin a $80.6 million fixed-price contract for modified ballistic re-entry vehicles (MBRV) and separation modules. Dynetics, Inc., a subcontractor, will provide key components to the vehicles. The contract is through 2022.
"We are proud to partner with Lockheed Martin to provide the MBRV aeroshells and the re-entry vehicle separation module structures. Because of our long-standing relationship with Lockheed Martin, we are able to provide quality products to our missile defense customer," said Scott Stanfield, Dynetics program manager.
Dynetics will design, manufacture, and integrate the aeroshells and structures in house. They will be integrated with other components from Lockheed Martin and other subcontractors to create the entire system.
