A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was Terma and Northrop Grumman confirming future opportunities for Terma to pursue additional component production beyond their current contracted agreements for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter jet.
This memorandum states that Northrop Grumman will offer Terma the opportunity for continued F-35 Lightning II aircraft component work for the F-35 Lightning II beyond Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) Lot 11.
In 2012, Terma entered into a long-term agreement with Northrop Grumman to manufacture composite and bonded assembly parts for all three variants of the aircraft.
Terma currently has eight different production programs within advanced composite structural parts and electronics on the F-35 Lightning II fighter. Terma has been working on the program since 2002 when Denmark joined the F-35 Lightning II program as a partner country.
In 2016 the Danish Parliament down-selected the F-35 Lightning II as Royal Danish Air Force’s next fighter.
