Midstate sites to work on $592M Lockheed missile contract
Harrisburg and Lancaster sites were included in a $592 million contract for Maryland-based defense and aerospace manufacturer Lockheed Martin Corp. to work on missile systems for the U.S. Strategic System Programs, according to the Department of Defense.
The latest five-year contract is a modification of an older one and includes options for missile production and system support that would make its total worth nearly $1.1 billion, according to the DOD. If all options are exercised, work would continue until April 2018.
Both the Lancaster and Harrisburg sites will be working on less than 1 percent of the contract, according to the DOD. Most of the contract work will take place in California and Florida.
