Lockheed Martin has been a proud partner with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for more than 50 years.
Lockheed Martin began its partnership with Jordan with the delivery of the first F-104s. This was soon followed by the arrival of the L-1011 to the late King Hussain’s Royal Flights, and then additional F-104s, C-130s, F-16s, radar systems and munitions. Lockheed Martin’s association with Jordan is regarded as one of its longest relationships in the Middle East.
Currently, Lockheed Martin supports over 15 different products and services in Jordan and works with the Jordanian Armed Forces to improve and supplement its capabilities.
“The past 50 years demonstrate our steadfast commitment to the Kingdom of Jordan. We are very honored and proud to collaborate with this great nation.”
– Tom Milton, Country Executive, Jordan
Lockheed Martin’s F-16 partnership with Jordan spans two decades. In 2013, the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) selected Lockheed Martin's Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP) to equip its F-16 fleet, enabling the RJAF to perform long-range target detection and identification and continuous stabilized surveillance for all missions, including close air support of ground forces. Jordan procured additional Sniper ATPs in 2015.
The High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a lightweight, highly mobile wheeled variant of the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) family of launchers. Procured by Jordan since 2010, HIMARS is a combat-proven precision strike system that has exceeded one million operational hours with U.S. and allied military forces. HIMARS offers battlefield commanders an early-entry weapon that can provide intimidating firepower support for light forces.
Jordan’s Black Hawk helicopters serve a diverse range of missions, from combat assault and peacekeeping to disaster relief, medical evacuation and VIP transport. UH-60M VIP Black Hawks transport the Royal family, Jordanian officials, visiting Heads of State and other dignitaries. The Jordanian Special Operations Aviation Brigade flies Black Hawks for special operations and border security, while the Royal Jordanian Air Force operates Black Hawks in its Royal Squadron.
