Lockheed to Build Sub Training Targets with New Deal

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) won $5.4 million from the Navy to create and second-generation anti-submarine training target.

The targets are designed to recreate the movements and sounds of diesel submarines to help crews train to defend against subs.

“We’ve worked with the U.S. and allied navies to provide a more affordable, flexible and proven solution to support their training missions, ” said Mike Gifford, Lockheed Martin’s senior program manager for underwater vehicles. “Our upgraded EMATT variant will provide the Navy with programmable acoustics, improved representation of enemy submarines and acoustic command links that are useable day or night in any sea state.”
