Lockheed Gets Navy Approval for IED Countermeasure System - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Symphony Block 40The U.S. Navy has approved a countermeasure technology Lockheed Martin developed to help protect U.S. and coalition forces against improvised explosive devices.

Lockheed said Tuesday its Symphony Block 40 platform is mounted on vehicles and designed to jam electronic trigger signals of radio-controlled IED threats.

The company integrated an open architecture into the counter-IED system to provide continuous threat spectrum coverage for military users.

Joe Ottaviano, Lockheed Martin director for electronic warfare, said the system builds on the company’s experience in helping warfighters address various threats over the past decade.

The company produces its Symphony products in Florida, Virginia and New York under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with the Navy.

Lockheed noted more than 4,500 Symphony Block 10/20 variant systems have been fielded to support U.S. and coalition troops  in Afghanistan, Iraq and other conflict zones.
