BAE Systems Australia has won a nine-month contract to develop operational models for the integration of the Lockheed Martin F-35 into the Australian defence environment.

The company will work with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to create a model that covers all aspects of the F-35 sustainment including maintenance, supply, training and fleet asset management.

“This contract will play a critical role in ensuring that Defence [Force], industry and our ADF men and women are ready and prepared for a smooth transition when the Joint Strike Fighter [JSF] comes into service,” says John Managhan, director aerospace at BAE Systems Australia.
