Lockheed Martin has won a $184 million modification contract from the US Navy for full-rate production of Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 systems.
SEWIP is a development program to upgrade the existing AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system. SEWIP Block 2 will expand upon the receiver/antenna group necessary to keep capabilities current with the pace of the threat and to yield improved system integration, the company said in a statement Monday.
Under this full-rate production contract, Lockheed Martin will continue providing and upgrading the AN/SLQ-32 systems on US aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers and other warships with key capabilities that determine if the electronic sensors of potential foes are tracking the ship.
The Navy awarded the company an initial $148.9 million contract for full-rate production of SEWIP Block 2 systems in 2016 with four additional option years to upgrade the fleet's electronic warfare capabilities so warfighters can respond to evolving threats, the statement added.
Lockheed Martin is waiting for US State Department Clearance for India's request to purchase 24 multi-role MH-60R Romeo anti-submarine helicopters. "The US Navy is preparing its response, which is expected to be delivered shortly," Vivek Lall, Vice President, Aeronautics Strategy and Business Development at Lockheed Martin told PTI
