DALLAS, Texas, Feb. 1, 2012. Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] received contracts totaling $921 million from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command for hardware and services associated with the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missile Segment program. 

The contract includes Fiscal Year 2012 (FY12) missile and command launch system production for the U.S. Army and a follow-on sale of the PAC-3 Missile Segment to Taiwan.  In 2009, Taiwan became the fifth international customer for the PAC-3 Missile Segment.

Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor on the PAC-3 Missile Segment upgrade to the Patriot air defense system.  The PAC-3 Missile Segment upgrade consists of the PAC-3 Missile, a hit-to-kill interceptor, the PAC-3 Missile canisters (each of which hold four PAC-3 Missiles, with four canisters per launcher), a fire solution computer and a launcher electronics system and launcher support hardware.
