Lockheed Martin is being awarded a $53 million modification contract for the production of Mk 48 Mod 7 guidance and control sections and Mk 48 Mod 7 Common Broadband Advanced Sonar System (CBASS) functional item replacement kits for Australia, Netherlands, Canada, Turkey and US Navys.

The contract also includes factory test equipment, spares, production support material and related engineering services and hardware support for guidance and control sections and CBASS kits, the US department of Defense said in a statement Friday.

This modification combines purchases for the Navy (65 percent); the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) via the PMS404 Joint Program Office’s (JPO) Armament Cooperation Program (ACP) (11 percent); and the governments of the Netherlands (23 percent); and Canada and Turkey (less than 1 percent), under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program. 

Work is expected to be completed by November 2020.
