Lockheed Martin Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif., is being awarded a $498,000,000 firm-fixed-price contract modification. This is an amendment to the existing letter contract that was issued November 16, 2001. The letter contract is for the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) System Development and Demonstration (SD&D) phase. The purpose of this amendment is to increase the not-to-exceed from $2.698 billion to $3.196 billion. This increase is a result of the fiscal year 2002 appropriation act decrease of $70 million and the loss of $30 million in international partner funding. Also, the not-to-exceed increase includes effort necessitated by the recent revision of the National Security Agency's KI-54 Interface control document, revision D in the amount of $46 million. This action provides for satellites replacement and upgrade of the associated ground command and control segment, and the necessary sustainment. AEHF Satellite Communications (SATCOM) system is a follow on to the Milstar SATCOM system. Compared to Milstar, AEHF will support twice as many tactical networks and result in 12 times the throughput while preserving the assured, protected communications capability required for strategic users. AEHF will provide secure, survivable communications to the U.S. warfighters during all levels of conflict, and will become the protected backbone of DoD's military satellite communications architecture. At this time, no funds have been obligated. The period of performance for this effort will span approximately 10 years. Lockheed Martin Corp. will perform this effort at TRW Inc. Space and Electronics Group, Redondo Beach, Los Angeles (46 percent), and Lockheed Martin Corp., Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space, Sunnyvale, Calif. (28 percent) and other locations. The Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0002, P00007).
