Lockheed Martin Meeting Goals for Navy Defense Technology Program - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin announced it has logged a successful critical design review for an electronic warfare system upgrade aimed at improving the Navy’s ability to defend against anti-ship missile threats.

With the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program, or SEWIP, the Navy is looking to improve upon the AN/SLQ-32 electronic warfare system used by warships.

“Block 2 establishes a framework for the Navy to easily integrate future block upgrades of the most current electronic warfare technology to defend the fleet,“ SEWIP program director Joe Ottaviano said. “This critical milestone validates our design and serves as the contractual go-ahead to produce two system prototypes by 2012.“

The firm secured an initial SEWIP Block 2 development deal in 2009 worth $9.9 million with options raising the project’s potential value to $167 million. Last year, the Navy approved Lockheed Martin’s preliminary design for Block 2 and exercised an option for $51.1 million.
