May 14 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army for ballistic radar tracking systems.

The deal, announced Friday by the Department of Defense, is valued at more than $91.5 million under the terms of a modified contract to a previous Pentagon award.

The contract from U.S. Army Contracting Command enables Lockheed Martin to provide "Phased Array Tracking on Radar to Intercept Advanced Capability-3 Missile Support Center for the U.S. logistics support missile repair and logistics support recertification," according to the Defense of Department.

Phased Array Tracking Radar is integrated into the U.S. Patriot missile defense system, which protects against a full spectrum of threats, including ballistic missiles and enemy aircraft.

The Pentagon said locations and funding will be determined with each individual order on the contract, which is estimated to run until June 8, 2019.
