Lockheed Martin has won an $85 million contract to provide seven AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) counter fire target acquisition radar to the US army.
Additionally, the company was selected in June to upgrade 19 of the US Army’s Q-53 radars, Lockheed Martin announced Monday.
“Soldiers can rapidly deploy the truck-mounted Q-53 and quickly determine the source of enemy fire,” said Bob Stelmack, Q-53 program manager for Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training.
“The 55 systems Lockheed Martin has delivered to the U.S. Army give troops advanced protection when they need it most.” Stelmack added. The Q-53 can be automatically leveled and remotely operated at 90- or 360-degrees and operated from a laptop computer or from the fully equipped climate-controlled command vehicle. Since Lockheed Martin won the development contract for the Q-53 radar in 2007, the company has won four additional contracts (for a total of 97) and delivered 55 systems on-time and on-budget to the U.S. Army.
The Army is expected to award a full-rate production contract by early 2016, covering an anticipated 77 additional systems.
Lockheed Martin has named Jeff Babione as the new executive vice president and general manager of the F-35 Program, effective January 1, 2016. Babione succeeds Lorraine Martin who has been appointed to the newly created position of deputy executive vice president, Mission Systems and Training (MST), the company said in a statement Friday
