Lockheed Martin has proudly partnered with Greece dating back to 1943 when Greece acquired its first squadron of Martin A-30 Baltimore Mk III, IV and Vs.
Since then, Lockheed Martin has worked closely with the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI), on a variety of projects including expansion of manufacturing facilities to accommodate F-16 co-production activities. Together, HAI and Lockheed Martin also jointly inaugurated the New HAI Paint Dry Stripping facility.
Other major programs include:
C-130H- In 1975, the Hellenic Air Force received its first of 12 C-130H Hercules airlifters. Deliveries were completed in May 1977. An additional follow on buy of five C-130Bs was completed in 1992. Co-production of structural components for the fuselage of the C-130J was completed in Tanagra in collaboration with the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI).
F-16- The Hellenic Air Force selected its first of 40 F-16C/D Block 30 fighter aircraft in 1987. Today the Hellenic Air Force flies 60 New Block 52+ aircraft.
Low-Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared System for Night (LANTIRN)- This system supports the Hellenic Air Force’s F-16s.
P-3A Orion- These aircraft were delivered to HAI in 1995for ground instruction training and spare parts reclamation, and the first P-3B was officially handed over to the Hellenic Navy in 1996. They currently have four P-3As and six P-3Bs to fulfill the maritime surveillance role of HAI.
M-TADS/PNVS (Arrowhead) is the advanced electro-optical fire control system that AH-64 Apache helicopter pilots use for safe flight in day, night, or bad weather missions. M-TADS/PNVS advanced technology improves system performance by over 150 percent. Reliability increases more than 150 percent while maintenance actions decrease approximately 60 percent. Over 1100 systems have been delivered.
The LONGBOW system is built by a Joint Venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. U.S. Army testing shows integrated capabilities enhance the Apache lethality fourfold and survivability sevenfold. The LONGBOW Fire Control Radar (FCR) rapidly and automatically searches, detects, locates, classifies, and prioritizes multiple moving and stationary targets on land, water and in the air in all weather and battlefield conditions from standoff ranges. High system reliability and two-level maintenance maximize operational availability and reduce support costs.
Hellfire II- This missile is used on the Apache AH-64A.
Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS)- More information needed
Vessel Traffic Management- Lockheed Martin partners with Intracom to provide this important program.
Martin’s Tank Driving and Firing Simulator- This system support three Main Battle Tanks: Leopard, M48 and M60.
