Navy Orders 2 Lockheed Submarine Sonar Arrays

lockheed martinLockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has received an $8 million contract modification to provide the U.S. Navy with two additional sonar systems intended to help submarines avoid other vehicles under the sea.

The Defense Department said Thursday the company will produce two AN/BQQ-25 low cost conformal arrays and associated outboard electronic canisters and spare parts.

The modification exercises an option under a potential $92.4 million LCCA production contract.

LCCA systems are passive planar arrays that are mounted on aft submarine structures and designed for tactical control and collision avoidance in high-density underwater environments.

Ninety percent of the work will occur in Syracuse, New York, and the remaining 10 percent in Marion, Massachusetts, and in Owego, New York, through January 2017.
