F-22 TEAM

For added integration responsibilities, see Division of Work.

Building a fighter with capabilities never realized before means we must rely on our far-ranging experience and knowledge to push the envelope in terms of speed (particularly faster cycle times), accuracy, delivery and total integration. Rely on your total team - all players - to assist you in any areas going forward, both for major production and subcontractor issues.



Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company
(Marietta, GA)

Responsible for overseeing weapon system integration; developing and constructing the forward fuselage, including the cockpit and inlets; the vertical fins and stabilators; wing and empennage leading edges, ailerons and flaperons; landing gear; and leading avionics architecture development and functional design, as well as displays, controls, the air data system and apertures.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company
(Fort Worth, TX)

Responsible for developing and constructing the mid-fuselage; armament; providing the tailored electronic warfare system, the integrated communications, navigation and identification (CNI) system; stores management and inertial navigation systems; and development of the support system.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company
(Palmdale, CA)

Responsible for developing and constructing the low-observable edges of the F-22 including the flaperons, ailerons, leading edge flaps, wing tips, wing stubs, aftbooms, vertical stubs, vertical leading edge, inlet diverter lips, rudders, CNI antennas and the Integrated Forebody. Also, Palmdale is one of two locations responsible for F-22 modernization work.



Boeing
(Seattle, Wash)

Responsible for the wings and the aft fuselage, including the structures for engine and nozzle installation; avionics integration, including radar system development and testing and operation of the Avionics Integration Laboratory (AIL) and the 757 Avionics Flying Test Bed; and the development of the training, life support, and fire protection systems. Added achievements to date include development of stealthy coating to reduce the F-22ís vulnerability to infrared threats. Visit the site.



Pratt & Whitney
(East Hartford, Conn)

Under separate contract from the Air Force to provide the F-22's engines. The F119-PW-100 is a new, higher thrust-to-weight engine that is designed for efficient supersonic operation without afterburner (supercruise), and promises increased durability over current engines. Two F119 engines will power each F-22. Pratt & Whitney consolidated its military engine operations with its commercial programs in East Hartford during the course of F-119 development. The relocation was made to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Visit the site.


USAF Web Site
The U.S. Air Force
The USAF plays a major role in the development of the F-22. Through their participation in flight tests, Air Force pilots have provided their expert, invaluable feedback to help the combined test force F-22 team create the safest, most capable fighter this nation has seen. Air Force participation in testing has helped and continues to help the F-22 development and operational test teams move more swiftly toward completing project milestones and meeting and exceeding congressional mandates and Defense reviews for aircraft performance, effectiveness and suitability.
