Lockheed Team-Built LCS 7 Completes Ship Qualification Tests - top government contractors - best government contracting eventFreedom-class U.S. Navy littoral combat ship built by a Lockheed Martin-led industry team has completed a series of combat system ship qualification trials that evaluated the vessel’s capacity to track and disable maneuvering surface targets.

The service branch said Friday LCS Crew 103 tested the USS Detroit‘s combat systems suite that includes a 57mm gun designed to target fast attack platforms.

Lockheed launched USS Detroit, also called LCS 7, with the company’s shipbuilding partners Marinette Marine and Gibbs & Cox in October 2014.

The Navy commissioned the vessel in October 2016 to join the service branch’s LCS fleet that includes USS Fort Worth, USS Freedom and USS Milwaukee.

Cmdr. Michael Desmond, commanding office of the LCS Crew 103, said that the team conducted tactical and technical training as well as associated ammunition storage, ship handling and area planning missions for USS Detroit.
