Lockheed Wins $58.5M Marine Corps Contract for Sensor and Surveillance Systems

The U.S. Marine Corps has awarded Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) a $58.6 million contract to provide new systems, equipment and support services associated with the vehicle optic sensor systems II and portable rapid deployment surveillance systems. The contract’s performance period is through March 2012.

Lockheed Martin will provide 110 Gyrocam VOSS II and 30 Gyrocam PRDSS, plus additional field services and equipment in support of these systems. The VOSS is a versatile vehicle-mounted sensor system with night vision and thermal capabilities and the PRDSS is a surveillance system that can provide intelligence in urban, rural and extreme terrains.

“The VOSS and PRDSS provide the Marines with the warfighting capability necessary to meet their evolving mission needs, ” said Jay Pitman, director and general manager of Lockheed Martin Gyrocam Systems, LLC.   “Thanks to a combination of rugged design, along with our strong in-theater support team, the Marines have been able to maintain an exceptional operational readiness rate for the VOSS and PRDSS while operating in harsh and remote environments.”

The equipment will be produced at the Lockheed Martin Gyrocam Systems facility in Sarasota, Fla.
