F-35 Lightning II Multirole 5th Generation Fighter

The F-35 Lightning II is a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced sustainment. Three variants of the F-35 will replace the A-10 and F-16 for the U.S. Air Force, the F/A-18 for the U.S. Navy, the F/A-18 and AV-8B Harrier for the U.S. Marine Corps, and a variety of fighters for at least ten other countries.

The Lightning II is a single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed for many missions with advanced, integrated sensors built into every aircraft. Missions that were traditionally performed by small numbers of specialized aircraft, such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and electronic attack missions can now be executed by a squadron of F-35s, bringing new capabilities to many allied forces.

The F-35 is developed, produced, and supported by an international team of leading aerospace companies. As the prime contractor, Lockheed Martin continues its 100-year history of aircraft research and design with the Lightning II. Principal partners Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems build the center and aft fuselages, respectively. Northrop Grumman also brings its expertise in carrier aircraft and low-observable stealth technology to the F-35 program and supports logistics, sustainment, modeling and simulation and mission planning. BAE Systems contributes a rich heritage of capabilities, including short takeoff and vertical landing experience, advanced lean manufacturing, flight testing and air systems sustainment. Pratt & Whitney builds the F-35's F135 propulsion system, the world's most powerful fighter engine.

GPS III Space System

Lockheed Martin is awarded with $1.46 billion contract to build the next-generation Global Positioning System program, known as GPS III Space System. The program for GPS III Space System is intended to improve positioning, navigation, and timing services for the war fighter and civil users worldwide.

GPS III Space System will also provide advanced anti-jam capabilities thus yielding superior system security, accuracy and reliability. A new spot beam capability for military (M-Code) coverage and increased resistance to hostile jamming will be incorporated in the GPS III Space system. These enhancements in GPS III Space System will improve accuracy and assured availability for military and civilian users. With GPS III Space System, Lockheed Martin will make a progression in its reputation of developing advanced spacecrafts in the current GPS constellation.

GPS III Space System as a part of Global Positioning System enables users with precise time and velocity. Worldwide latitude, longitude and altitude and small distances of a few meters can also be determined by GPS III Space System. Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado manages and operates GPS III Space system.
