WASHINGTON, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin is being issued a $60 million-plus contract modification for recurring logistics services support for delivered air systems of F-35 aircraft.

The U.S. Department of Defense said services include ground maintenance activities; action request resolution; depot activation activities; automatic logistics information system operations and maintenance; reliability, maintainability and health management implementation and support; supply chain management; and activities to provide and support pilot and maintainer initial training in support of delivered Air Systems.

They are to be provided to the U.S. military, international partners in the F-35 program, and buyers of the F-35 through the Foreign Military Sales program.

The total value of the modification to a previously awarded cost-plus incentive-fee contract is $60,412,726 million. A total of $23,443,299 of that funding will expire at the end of the current fiscal year, the Department of Defense said.
