The first order is for delivery of structural parts to Northrop Grumman for the Center Fuselage of the aircraft for production Lot 10. The order is in accordance with the on-going frame agreement with Northrop Grumman.
The second order represents new scope of work for KONGSBERG on the F-35 aircraft with production of Main Landing Gear panels (MLG) to Lockheed Martin
for production Lots 10 and 11. The MLG panels form structural parts of the aircraft and will be built in composite materials.

After successful qualification, KONGSBERG will be Single Source Producer also for the MLG parts and the sales potential for delivery of MLG panels over the life of the program is about 1 billion NOK. This is on top of the 15 billion NOK sales potential of the existing F-35 scope of work associated with delivery of structural parts for the aircraft.
Including these two orders, KONGSBERG has so far this year received orders for more that 700 MNOK for delivery of structural parts to the F-35 aircraft.
