Northrop Grumman and Terma will continue to team for F-35 parts

COPENHAGEN, Denmark. Northrop Grumman and Danish aircraft-component contractor Terma have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), under which Terma will continue to collaborate with Northrop Grumman beyond their current contracted agreements for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

The memorandum states that will offer Terma the opportunity to obtain continued component work for the beyond low rate initial production (LRIP) Lot 11, provided that Terma remains the best-value source. Terma entered into a long-term agreement with Northrop Grumman in 2012 to manufacture composite and bonded assembly parts for all three variants of the F-35.

Terma currently has eight different production programs focused on advanced composite structural parts and electronic systems on the F-35.
