Lockheed Martin makes $2.25 million order for Q-70 program

GE-Fanuc Intelligent Platforms received another order from Lockheed Martin today, $2.25 million for the company’s VME-7809 VMEbus single board computer and NETernity RM921 Ethernet switches that will eventually be put into use in the Lockeed Martin AN/UYQ-70 C4 (command, control, communications and computer) system.

The transaction puts the dollar amount of orders placed by Lockheed Martin with GE-Fanuc at over $5 million for the Q-70 program alone. The U.S. Navy, in addition to naval systems in countries across the world such as Australia and Japan, deploy the Q-70 servers, workstations, and network systems.

Because of its performance and the improved communications it offers, it’s estimated that Lockheed Martin has saved the U.S. Navy more than $1.5 billion dollars over the course of 15 years implementing the Q-70 program.
