WASHINGTON, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin has received a $29.5 million contract modification to produce PAC-3 missiles for a foreign military sale to Qatar.
The modification supports Qatar's order for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles and a missile segment enhancement task order for a planned flight test.
The U.S. Department of Defense did not identify where work on the contract modification would be performed, but estimates the work will be complete by September 2021. The Army Contracting Command in Redstone Arsenal, Ala., is listed as the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin markets the Patriot Advanced Capability-3, or PAC-3, as the world's most effective air and missile defense interceptor. The solution has been sold to ten international customers, and can be deployed using THAAD launchers.
