Lockheed to Upgrade Seven P-3Cs for Pakistan

Lockheed Martin Corp., Eagan, Minn., is being awarded a $43,988,555 modification to a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (N00019-06-D-0012) for the upgrade of seven P-3C aircraft for the government of Pakistan under the Foreign Military Sales program.

This modification in support of the Pakistan Navy P-3C upgrade program will replace the obsolete and unsustainable avionics systems currently installed with modern equipment that provides increased capabilities, reliability and will be sustainable for future operations.

Work will be performed in Eagan, Minn. (70 percent), and Greenville, S.C. (30 percent), and is expected to be completed in February 2013. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Naval Air Warfare Center, Lakehurst, N.J., is the contracting activity.

aircraft with an order of 120 P8 Martime Petrol air craft from 2014 onwards .The p3 fleet is or will be redundant. So they offered 08 aircraft to Pakistan.44 million USD to be spent on upgradation.
