LockheedLogoLockheed Martin has won a $39.1 million contract modification to update the Navy’s receiver and antenna used for its electronic warfare system, Military Aerospace & Electronics reports.

John Keller writes the Naval Sea Systems Command awarded the modification for the branch’s Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program Block 2 system.

The company will buy SEWIP Block 2 low-rate initial production units and start deliveries to the Navy by September 2014, Keller reports.

Lockheed’s radar systems business won the contract for block 2 in 2009, according to the report.

Its team of subcontractors at the time included Cobham Defence Electronic Systems, Azure Summit Technology, ITT Electronic Systems and Research Associates Syracuse.   

Raytheon is working with Lockheed to develop different SEWIP variants for block 3.
