Lockheed Martin‘s rotary and mission systems unit has secured a four-year, $27 million contract modification to supply the U.S. Navy with periscope detection and discrimination radar kits.
The Defense Department said Friday Lockheed will deliver 16 standard and SEED retrofit kits to the Navy’s H-60 Automatic Radar Periscope Detect and Discrimination program.
Work under the modification will occur in New York and Florida through October 2020.
The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate $9,992,822 at the time of award from the service branch’s fiscal 2015 and 2017 aircraft procurement funds.
Lockheed secured a $67.6 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in July 2016 to produce periscope detection and discrimination radar kits for installation aboard the Navy’s MH-60R Seahawk multimission helicopters.
The Navy uses such radar technology to detect and track submarine periscopes as well as identify periscope detections from sea clutter.
