Lockheed Martin Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif., and Northrop Grumman Space Technology, Los Angeles, Calif., are being awarded a $32,550,000 cost-plus award-fee contract modification. This contract change procures spare critical components to be used, if necessary, in factory by the contractor during assembly and test and of Advanced Extremely High Frequency (EHF) satellites. Originally, five Advanced EHF satellites were to be built. This number ensured that there would be enough spare parts to avoid delays during production. For this reason the original Advanced EHF plan did not include production spares. In November 2002 two of the Advanced EHF satellites were cancelled and the third satellite was delayed one year. There were no longer adequate numbers of spare critical parts to prevent production delays. Advanced EHF satellite will work todays Milstar satellites to provide highly reliable, secure and survivable communication to U.S. leaders and combat forces during all levels of conflict. At this time, $28,062,500 of the funds have been obligated. This work will be complete by January 2009. The Headquarters Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles, Calif., is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0002, P00083).
