F-16 Small Business Opportunity
September 2021 --
Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is planning to compete several systems for the F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet. The F-16 offers advanced interoperable capabilities that enhance partnerships with allies. The aircraft has proven its effectiveness for decades and continues to remain the best value among 4th generation fighters for its capabilities and affordable lifecycle costs. The F-16 Program Management and Supplier Diversity teams are seeking interested suppliers for potential partnership. The criteria for participation include: related aircraft manufacturing experience, heat treatment, special coatings, painting, testing, in-house engineering capabilities, AS9100 certified and/or ISO9000 certified.
Interested companies are invited to respond to the F-16 Affordability Questionnaire below to communicate interest and capability to fulfill this objective. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics intent is to use responses to assess the best fit for potential follow-on requests. This questionnaire serves as a Request for Information (RFI) that is intended solely for planning purposes and does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a promise to issue an RFP in the future.
