Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has received a $58.8 million other transaction authority agreement to continue building prototypes of an electronic warfare and cyber capability for integration with the U.S. Army’s Stryker vehicles.
The OTA agreement will run through October 2023 in support of a manufacturing proof of concept for the Army’s Terrestrial Layer System – Brigade Combat Team program, the service said Wednesday.
Ken Strayer, project manager for electronic warfare and cyber at the Army, said TLS-BCT is an integrated suite of EW, cyberspace and signals intelligence capabilities designed to provide situational awareness to warfighters through threat detection and identification and enemy signals disruption.
PM EW&C has performed soldier touchpoints to support technical assessments of the technology and intends to employ additional OTAs to facilitate the integration of TLS-BCT with the military branch’s armored multipurpose vehicles.
In September 2021, Lockheed won an OTA agreement to work on the second phase of the Army’s TLS-BCT program.
