Lockheed to Install, Test Aegis Combat Systems on Navy Ships

Lockheed Martin Corp. won a $20 million Navy contract modification to provide engineering services for the Aegis combat system, the Defense Department announced Friday.

The Bethesda, Md.-based contractor will integrate, install and test the systems on DDG-51 class ships.

The company’s mission systems and sensors unit will also provide planning, technical data package development, test procedure development, test engineering, installation engineering and combat system test engineering.

The modification includes work for ship design integration, configuration management, firmware maintenance, combat system test and evaluation, Navy-furnished material support and special studies.

The Pentagon expects work to finish in September 2012.

The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington is the contracting activity.

The company won a similar modification in February to provide technical and engineering support for Aegis missile defense and combat systems.

Work under that contract supports New Jersey-based facilities for foreign military sales programs.
