According to the Department of Defense, “Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is being awarded a $460, 375, 787 contract modification. This contract modification to the engineering, manufacturing, and development contract for the Space Base Infrared System (SBIRS) revises the ground development and delivery strategy and ultimately implements a more flexible ground infrastructure. Current program funding is sufficient to execute this updated implementation. This modification delivers the next block (i.e. Block 10) of ground systems capability and is built upon a smart architecture that allows the four different mission areas to be segregated to achieve future sustainment efficiencies and enable independent evolution of capability. The Block 10 delivery also provides an interface for other users as a critical step in ensuring that the SBIRS data is available to a large community of users for both real time activities as well off-line analysis. This upgraded ground system will be fielded at one primary and one back-up government facility, and it will replace the existing legacy operational ground system and other interim stand-alone software baselines. The Block 10 system will perform integrated processing of data from SBIRS and its legacy system, i.e., DSP Overhead Persistent Infrared satellites. The system will release missile warning and battle space awareness messages to war fighters and will provide other relevant data to technical intelligence and missile defense users. Work will be performed at Sunnyvale, Calif. and Redondo Beach, Calif. The contracting activity is the Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Cal., (F04701-95-C-0017, P00641).
