L-3 KEO has won a multi-million dollar contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for nine MK 20 Electro-Optical Sensor Systems (EOSSs).
L-3 KEO will build and test the systems, as well as perform engineering services activities, over the course of the next two years in US.
This is the final contract option from a sole-source NAVSEA contract that was awarded to L-3 KEO in 2011 and raises the total number of MK 20 EOSSs ordered to 61.
Matthew Richi, president of L-3 KEO said, “Our system delivers outstanding mission capability and targeting accuracy to the surface warfare community.”
The MK 20 EOSS is an integral part of both the MK 34 and MK 48 Gun Weapon Systems (GWSs) and provides highly accurate, three-dimensional, time-tagged target position data in support of GWS operations, as well as day and night imagery to support visual detection and identification, navigation, surveillance and situational awareness.
These gun systems are installed aboard US Navy Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and Ticonderoga-class cruisers, as well as US Coast Guard Bertholf-class national security cutters.
