The Missile Defense Agency has awarded Lockheed Martin an $11.6M contract to operate and support the Aegis Combat System that the military uses to detect and counter enemy missiles.
The company will also provide these services for the Aegis’ multi-mission signal processor, vertical launch system, command and decision system, weapon control system, Mark 99 fire control system, display system, computer infrastructure, operational readiness and test system and combat training system, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The agency initially obligates $175K in fiscal 2018 funds allotted for research, development, test and evaluation efforts.
Work will take place at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii, through Nov. 15, 2023.
The MDA sourced the award via a competitive solicitation and attracted one proposal.
Early this year, Lockheed completed the integration of its solid-state radar platform with the Aegis system.
