A. Lee Graham Reporter   The final Lockheed Martin joint light tactical vehicle produced for the program’s engineering, manufacturing and development phase has rolled off the assembly line, joining a fleet of previously completed vehicles that will be delivered for government testing and evaluation this summer. The Lockheed Martin team produced 22 such test vehicles, manufactured at BAE Systems’ Sealy, Texas manufacturing facility. Delivery to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps for long-term testing and evaluation is scheduled for August 22. “Lockheed Martin is committed to providing our soldiers and Marines with a vehicle of unequalled capability and dependability, and one that is affordable both to buy and to operate,” said Scott Greene, vice president of ground vehicles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, commenting in a news release. “We are excited to get these vehicles into the hands of the customer. Early break-in testing is under way, and we are confident that our JLTV design will serve our servicemen and women well,” Greene said. The U.S. Army and Marine Corps awarded Lockheed Martin a $65 million contract in August 2012 to continue developing the joint light tactical vehicle through the engineering, management and development phase. Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company employing about 118,000 people worldwide. It designs, develops and manufacturers advanced technology systems, products and services. More information is available at www.lockheedmartin.com/jltv.   lgraham@bizpress.net
