DOD aircraft team will collaborate Web-style

The Joint Strike Fighter program has bought Web-ready collaborative software from Electronic Data Systems Corp.

Through the $8 million contract, the JSF program will use Teamcenter software to design, build, test and deploy the Defense Department's next-generation aircraft fleet.

JSF is DOD's initiative to develop cost-effective aircraft weapons systems for the Air Force, Navy, Marines and American allies. A team led by Lockheed Martin Corp. won the JSF contract Oct. 26, and it expects to build more than 3,000 strike fighters for the military.

The JSF program brings together more than 10,000 personnel from Lockheed Martin and two dozen partners and suppliers. DOD expects to begin using the first JSF planes in 2008.
