Lockheed Martin and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that will govern co-operation between the two companies and lead to work on maintenance of the Polish armed forces' F-16 fighter and C-130 transport aircraft.
Working groups will establish maintenance centres for the two Lockheed Martin-manufactured types, as well as a component repair facility for both aircraft. The MoU will also further development areas including work on next-generation unmanned air system to meet Poland's organic requirements and enable it to contribute to NATO security initiatives.
PGZ will be incorporated into Lockheed Martin's global supply chain via these identified areas of work and will leverage its presence in several countries to aid the Polish defence company with export opportunities.
