KING OF PRUSSIA, USA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $12.5 million subcontract from Northrop Grumman for the refurbishment of reentry vehicle arming and fuzing assemblies for the US Air Force’s Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile system.

The one year contract entails replacement of components, refurbishment and testing the arming and fuzing assemblies.

The subcontract includes an option for a second year, Lockheed said.

Under an earlier contract in 2009, Lockheed had successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the refurbishment effort. The company is the original equipment manufacturer for the arming and fuzing assembly of the Minuteman III ICBMs.

The work will be conducted at Lockheed Martin Space System’s Valley Forge facility in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
