Danish order values

The Industrial Partnership monitors Danish companies’ participation in the JSF programme itself, as well as in other defence-industry and high-tech exports to the USA.

The table below shows the specific order flows being monitored under the auspices of the Industrial Partnership:

Monitored order flows

High-tech or defence-related exports



Responsibility for monitoring the various order flows is distributed among the partners in the Industrial Partnership. An overall specification can be found in the Danish Business Authority’s Annual Report to the Danish Parliament.

Order flows 3 and 4

Twice a year, Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney meet with the Danish Business Authority and submit an updated overview of activities with Danish companies relating to the JSF partnership. Based on the overviews, the Danish Business Authority contacts the relevant Danish companies to have the figures verified.

In the most recent verification process, Danish companies have verified a total amount of mio. USD 482,3  from Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney.

33% of the order volume was directly placed by Lockheed Martin, while 1% was placed by Pratt & Whitney. The remaining 66% represents orders placed by Lockheed Martin’s external suppliers. Since Denmark entered into the development phase in 2002, a total of 16 Danish companies have received JSF orders from Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney and external suppliers.

The Danish Business Authority is not at liberty to release the semi-annual reports from Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney. The reason for this is that the reports contain sensitive commercial information about the companies, including information such as specific contract orders, contract values and expected future contracts.


[1] Danish companies’ deliverables for the manufacture of the F-35 to the US armed forces are not shown, as Danish companies will deliver to Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney or one of their external suppliers.
