Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $32.9 million contract modification for contractor logistics support for the Taiwan F-16 Peace Phoenix Program.
This week's deal funds contractor logistics support, repair and return and manufacturing source management services for the F-16's Active Electronically Scanned Array Radar, or ESAR.
ESARs are computer-controlled antennae which allow the beam of radio waves to be steered in different directions without an operator physically touching the antenna. In December Northrop Grumman received $1 billion to produce ESARs for the Air Force's F-16 aircraft.
Work on this contract will be performed in Taiwan, with an expected completion date of May 31, 2022.
