ORLANDO, Fla., 9 July 2009. Lockheed Martin won from the U.S. Air Force a five-year, $60 million contract to continue depot maintenance support for LANTIRN navigation and targeting pods at the Lockheed Martin Warner Robins Worldwide Depot. The depot supports repairs on LANTIRN pods for U.S. Air Force and foreign military customers.

LANTIRN navigation and targeting pods provide aviators with enhanced range, resolution, and reliability. Under provisions of the contract, Lockheed Martin will continue to operate the government-owned Worldwide Depot at Warner Robins Air Force Base, Ga., through 2014.

"Lockheed Martin is proud of its 11-year partnership with the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center to keep LANTIRN pods available and battle-ready," says David Ragsdale, LANTIRN product support manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Our depot employees and U.S. Air Force team provide quick-turn repairs on LANTIRN assets with a commitment to quality."

The Worldwide Depot is located alongside the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center.

LANTIRN Extended Range (ER), an upgraded version of the LANTIRN, enables aircrews to operate in daylight or darkness, at mission altitudes from sea level to 40,000 feet, with outstanding targeting performance, says a representative.

LANTIRN ER is offered as a newly fabricated pod, or as an upgrade to existing pods. The LANTIRN ER targeting pod is deployed and combat-proven on the U.S. Navy S-3B, and is integrated and tested on the P-3.
