BAE to Manufacture Additional Seeker Tech for Lockheed Anti-Ship Missile Systems

BAE Systems has received a $60M contract from Lockheed Martin to build more missile seekers for integration into Long Range Anti-Ship Missile systems designed to help military customers detect and track targets while defending against counter-fire.

Lockheed awarded the contract as part of ongoing efforts to transition the LRASM program to the low-rate production phase, BAE said Tuesday.

The LRASM seeker contains sensor and targeting elements that help the anti-ship missile strike maritime targets while mitigating reliance on air-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies as well as GPS and networking links.

Bruce Konigsberg, product area director for radio frequency sensors at BAE, said the company’s partnership with Lockheed is focused on delivering long-range precision strike weapons that ensure warfighters’ competitive advantage over adversaries.

In April, Lockheed received a  $167.5M contract to produce additional LRASMs for the U.S. Air Force.
