Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $9.5 million Navy contract modification for additional submarine imaging systems.
The company will provide five AN/BVY-1 Integrated Submarine Imaging Systems (ISIS), as well as spare parts, according to the Department of Defense contract announcement. The ISIS system includes replacing submarine periscopes with high-definition cameras, infrared cameras and image enhancement.
“ISIS rolls-up existing components and near term capabilities, and provides a robust architecture for efficiently inserting future capabilities as they become available for Technical Insertion Advance Processor Builds (TI/APB) Submarine Warfare Federated System process,” the Navy said.
It will be fitted to Los Angeles-, Seawolf-, Ohio- and Virginia-class submarines, as well as future vessel submarines.
