Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KONGSBERG) has said on 22 September that it has received an order worth some €105 million (NOK1.2 billion) from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to supply parts for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program.
The deal covers production lots 18-19 for Rudders, Vertical Leading Edges and Main Landing Gear Closeout panels for three versions of the F-35, more than 300 aircraft overall.
“KONGSBERG has been a long-standing partner to Lockheed Martin on the F-35 program, and our latest agreement is testament to our strong position in this program. It also adds two more years of production from our facility, further strengthening our position for future lots beyond 2027,” said Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
Deliveries from the new order will begin in 2025 and enable continued deliveries through 2027 from the company’s production facility in Norway. KONGSBERG is currently working on more than 450 aircraft, part of the production lots 15-17, which will be delivered through 2025.
