Lockheed has been awarded a fixed-price-incentive, cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract worth $920.7m to make Trident II (D5) missiles and provide related support.

The Trident missile is a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) with multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) capability and is the primary weapon carried by the US Navy’s Ohio Class submarines.

The missile is a sophisticated three-stage, solid-propellant, inertially guided missile capable of carrying a heavy payload and is accurate enough to be a first strike, counterforce, or second strike weapon.

Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company is expected to complete the work by 30 April 2016.
