Lockheed to Design Undersea Vehicle for Navy - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin has won a potential $43.2 million contract to design an underwater platform as part of the U.S. Navy‘s Extra Large Unmanned Undersea Vehicle program.

The Navy seeks an XLUUV platform equipped with a reconfigurable payload bay that will work to help the service branch launch, recover, operate and communicate with the system from a home base, Lockheed said Monday.

Lockheed will perform contract work in Palm Beach, Florida, and will receive support from the company’s employees in Virginia and New York.

The “Orca” competition involves the design phase and a subsequent phase for the production of up to nine underwater drones.

A team of Boeing and Huntington Ingalls Industries will also design an XLUUV platform for the Navy under a $42.3 million contract awarded in September.
