Kongsberg has signed an agreement with Lockheed Martin worth NOK 1.2 billion to supply parts for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program.
The agreement covers production lots 18-19 for Rudders, Vertical Leading Edges and Main Landing Gear Closeout panels for the three versions of the F-35, totaling more than 300 aircraft.
“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,” says Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
Deliveries from the new order will begin in 2025 and will enable continued deliveries through 2027 from Kongsberg’s production facility in Norway. The company is currently working on production lots 15-17, totaling more than 450 aircraft, which will be delivered to the customer through 2025.
