The US Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin a $111.4 million contract modification for sustainment of the F-22 Raptor fleet on 24 August 2010. This modification is to the Follow-On Agile Sustainment for the Raptor, or FASTeR, sustainment contract, which was issued initially in 2008 and extended in 2009. FASTeR is a performance-based logistics contract providing weapon systems sustainment of the F-22 fleet at all operational bases, including training systems, customer support, integrated support planning, supply chain management, aircraft modifications and heavy maintenance, sustained engineering, support products, and systems engineering.
