WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin Logistics Services has been awarded a $8.2 million U.S. Navy delivery order for avionics work supporting the VH-92A Presidential Helicopter Program.
The order is against a previously awarded cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
Work will involve avionics design, hardware and software development, testing fabrication, installation and maintenance of avionics systems in support of the program.
Work will be performed in Maryland and is expected to be completed in August 2018.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division is the contracting activity.
Lockheed announced in July that it had completed the program's critical design review, paving the way for assembly, testing and evaluation.
Lockheed subsidiary Sikorsky Aircraft received a $1.24 billion U.S. Navy fixed-price incentive engineering and manufacturing development contract in May 2014 for 21 operational and two test aircraft.
The new presidential helicopter's fielding is planned for 2020, with production ending in 2023.
Under the deal, Sikorsky will use its production S-92 aircraft and integrate government-defined mission systems and an executive interior.
