Fort Worth Firm Wins $7.9 Million F-22 Contract Modification
Fort Worth Firm Wins $7.9 Million F-22 Contract Modification  | dal_ftw_txbz, Lockheed Martin, F-22,

Texas Business reports:  Lockheed Martin received another F-22 contract modification worth millions, the U.S. Department of Defense announced.

There have been calls to cease F-22 production, though the existing aircraft are still sustained. In April 2009, the DOD proposed to cease placing new orders, subject to Congressional approval, for a final procurement tally of 187 Raptors.

Congress passed budget bill versions without F-22 production funding in July 2009.  President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 in October 2009, without funding for F-22 production.

Lockheed Martin of Fort Worth received a $7,926,738 contract modification which will procure the installation of a retrofit to add additional capability to the F-22 weapons and tactics trainers. 

At this time, the entire amount has been obligated. 

ASC/WWUK, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base of Ohio  handled the contracting activity.
