Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin has installed a company-built vehicle optical sensor system on the U.S. Navy‘s USNS Grapple rescue and salvage ship to support NATO‘s patrol operations in the Aegean Sea.

The company and the military branch chose a first-generation Gyrocam VOSS from the U.S. government’s inventory and completed system installation over a two-week period, Lockheed said Wednesday.

“To support NATO’s security mission quickly, the U.S. Navy needed long-range detection and identification capabilities to identify ships and small water craft,” said Paul Lemmo, a vice president at Lockheed’s missiles and fire control segment.

VOSS I is designed with commercial off-the-shelf components, infrared sensors, night vision and laser rangefinder features.

Lockheed noted more than 1,100 VOSS systems have supported surveillance missions of the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, NATO and law enforcement agencies.
