Lockheed Martin will work to refresh the interfaces of the U.S. Navy’s various submarine warfare subsystems under a $60 million contract awarded in December.
The company will update the Submarine Warfare Federated Tactical Systems on multiple submarine classes such as the Virginia-class submarines, Lockheed Martin said Tuesday.
Lockheed’s SWFTS systems engineering and integration team will perform work at its Manassas, Virginia-based anti-submarine warfare laboratory.
The lab is fully integrated with sonar, tactical control and weapons control and imaging submarine combat systems to facilitate risk mitigation before the submarine is delivered to the Navy, Lockheed noted.
