Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems is awarded a $63,102,113 contract modification in support of the continued development, integration, and production of the United States Navy’s AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 Surface Ship Undersea Warfare (USW) system.
The AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 is the USW combat system with the capabilities to search, detect, classify, localize and track undersea contacts, and to engage and evade submarines, mine-like small objects and torpedo threats.
The contract is for development, integration and production of future Advanced Capability Build and Technical Insertion baselines. Work will be performed in Manassas, Virginia (83 percent); Lemont Furnace, Pennsylvania (10 percent); Syracuse, New York (6 percent); and Hauppauge, New York (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by May 2020, a US DoD announcement said.
The AN/SQQ-89(V) provides surface warships with a seamlessly integrated USW/ASW detection, localization, classification and targeting capability. The system presents an integrated picture of the acoustic tactical situation by receiving, combining and processing active and passive sonar sensor data from a variety of hull-mounted arrays, towed arrays, and sonobuoys. US Navy information on the topic said.
In addition to active and passive detection, the system provides a full range of USW functions; underwater fire control, onboard training capability, a highly-evolved display subsystem, and integration with the Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS MK III and Block II Upgrade) helicopter for sonobuoy signal processing.
