Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon Win $10 Million Concept Study Contracts

Northrop Grumman Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., and Raytheon Co. have each been awarded contracts by Naval Sea Systems Command to perform concept studies on two parts of a three-part radar system being developed by the Navy for missile defense.  Northrop and Lockheed’s contracts were worth $10 million, and Raytheon’s is valued at $9.9 million.

Contract work will be performed at Lockheed Martin’s Maritime Systems and Sensors unit in Moorestown, N.J.; Northrop’s Electronic Systems unit in Linthicum, Md.; and Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems in Sudbury, Mass.

The work involves the Air and Missile Defense Radar System, which contains an S-band system, an X-band system and a control system. The companies are being asked to provide concept studies for the S-band and control systems.

Based on their concept studies, the Navy likely will choose one of the three companies to build the system, said Kenneth Ross, a spokesman for Lockheed Martin MS2.
