Contract Award – Lockheed Martin – $9.9 Million – Navy

Lockheed Martin has been awarded a contract by the US Navy to supply systems for electronic warfare to surface vessels. The base contract is worth $9.9 million, with several options that, if used, total close to $167 million.

Lockheed Martin will be responsible for designing the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 Upgrade by summer 2010. Lockheed’s design is based off of commercially available electronics products that will allow the Navy greater flexibility in upgrading technology, along with providing advanced capabilities. Carl Brenner, VP and general manager of Radar Systems division at Lockheed said “This is a proven solution that will improve the surface navy’s electronic warfare system. By choosing Lockheed Martin in this competition, the Navy has endorsed our technical approach, which includes COTS components for proven cost savings and ease of maintenance.”
