Elbit Systems Ltd. (Haifa, Israel) announced on Sept. 14 that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elbit Systems – Cyclone Ltd., was awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin (Bethesda, Md., U.S.) for the manufacture of additional complex composite structural assemblies for the F-35 aircraft’s forward equipment bay assemblies. Contracted for a period of four years, Elbit says it will supply assemblies for all F-35 aircraft variants.

 Elbit Systems will reportedly deliver more than 1,400 components to Lockheed Martin during the contract period. The decision by Lockheed Martin comes as a result of Elbit Systems successful performance on the production of other composite structures for the F-35 program.

This award, says Elbit Systems, further expands its other work on the F-35, which includes the helmet mounted display systems, the development of the panoramic cockpit display, power amplifiers and 22 different structural assemblies.
