First F-22 Raptor delivered
Lockheed Martin has completed the first F-22 Raptor at the company’s Inlet Coating Repair (ICR) Speedline facility and delivered the aircraft back to the US Air Force ahead of schedule.Lockheed Martin is on contract to perform this work on a total of 12 aircraft and a follow-on contract is anticipated. Additionally, Lockheed Martin is providing modification support services, analytical condition inspections, radar cross section turntable support and antenna calibration. The increase in F-22 deployments, including ongoing operational combat missions, has increased the demand for ICR. Lockheed Martin provides sustainment services to the F-22 fleet through a US Air Force-awarded Performance Based Logistics contract and a comprehensive weapons management program called Follow-on Agile Sustainment for the Raptor (FASTeR). As the original equipment manufacturer and support integrator for the F-22 Raptor, Lockheed Martin works closely with the USAF to integrate a total life-cycle systems management process to ensure the Raptor fleet is ready to perform its mission.
