Lockheed Submits Final Proposal for Engineering Services on Aegis Ships

Lockheed Martin today submitted its final proposal to the U.S. Navy to provide combat systems engineering services for Aegis-equipped ships.

Ships with Aegis technology are multi-mission surface combatants that can simultaneously attack land targets, submarines and surface ships while defending against aircraft and missile strikes.

Lockheed has served as the Navy’s Aegis combat system engineer for four decades. Throughout that time, the team has evolved the system 15 times.

Currently, 100 Aegis-equipped ships are in service worldwide, as Aegis serves as the combat system of choice for the navies of Australia, Japan, Norway, the Republic of Korea and Spain.
