Australian firms supplying components for the F-35 Lightning fighter aircraft stand head and shoulder above their peers and Lockheed Martin’s job would be much easier if there were more such firms in their supply chain, a senior Lockheed official says.
Steve Over, Lockheed Martin director of international business development, said the limit on more Australian firms joining the F-35 program came from the lack underlying aerospace industrial capacity.
“Without question the 15 companies that are supplying pieces and parts for F-35 are head and shoulders above their peers in our global supply chain,” he told Defence Connect in an interview in Fort Worth, Texas.
“If we could have more companies around the rest of the world that are as capable, as persistent, as tenacious and really be partners with us in trying to achieve our program level objectives, our lives would be much, much easier.”
