Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co., Sunnyvale, Calif., is being awarded an $8,993,507 contract modification as an amendment to the existing system development and demonstration (SD&D) contract that was definitized April 15, 2001. The SD&D contract is for the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) System SD&D Phase. The purpose of this amendment is to increase the contract value from $2,630,166,866 to $2,639,160,373. This increase is the result of an engineering change proposal to implement a new AEHF System alternate key management plan (AKMP). The effort is within scope of the existing contract and necessitated by requirement/design changes that meet National Security Agency (NSA) security requirements that have been validated by Air Force Space Command, AFSPC/DRN. The current baseline key management plan presented logistics and maintenance requirements that could be support by the AEHF user. The system keys can't be produced until the NSA approves the AKMP. These changes must be implemented to avoid possible impact to the launch schedule. The locations of performance are Lockheed Martin Corp., Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space, Sunnyvale, Calif., and TRW Inc., Space and Electronics Group, Redondo Beach, Calif. At this time, no funds have been obligated. This work will be complete June 2008. The Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Calif., is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0002, P00029).
