Lockheed Martin‘s laser business has secured a $34.7 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to work on an unspecified research program.

Aculight will conduct most of its research and development efforts at its facilities in Bothell, Washington, while the remaining will be done in other locations at Moorestown, New Jersey, and Palmdale, California, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The business is expected to complete its contractual responsibilities by May 2023.

DARPA obligated fiscal 2022 research and development funds worth $3 million on the competitive award.

Acquired by Lockheed in 2008, Aculight provides military customers with laser technologies, including an airborne directed-energy weapon for the U.S. Air Force’s AC-130J gunships.
