Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a $7.5 million contract to install new computer servers into air surveillance radars for the U.S. Marine Corps, Military Aerospace & Electronics reported Thursday.
John Keller writes the company will work to replace the Oracle Sun Netra T5220 carrier-grade ruggedized computer servers with Oracle Sun Netra T4-1 carrier-grade servers.
The Marine Corps uses the servers for the AN/TPS-59A(V)3, a three-dimensional, ground-based air surveillance radar intended for anti-air warfare at ranges of up to 345.2 nautical miles.
Keller reports the radar also is designed for tactical ballistic missile surveillance at ranges of up to 460.3 miles.
T4-1 servers are built to hold up to 256 gigabytes of memory, according to the report.
