Lockheed Martin has won a $15.7 million modification contract for AEGIS Weapons System design requirements in support of America’s new Guided Missile Frigate (FFG(X)).
The Frigate Combat Management System (CMS) contract includes the design of the CMS. The planned contract action will modify CMS capabilities under development and integrate increased combat system element capability, resulting in an AEGIS Weapon System that aligns with FFG(X) class ships, the US Department of Defense said in a statement of Monday.
Earlier this month, the company won a $7 million contract that includes combat system (CS) ship integration engineering support and test planning, conducting a waterfront CS ship integration and test program, post-delivery engineering support to government test teams, engineering services for CS ship integration and test and developing test program documents for FFG(X) ships.
According to the US Navy, the next-generation FFG(X) frigate will have "multi-mission capability to conduct air warfare, anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare, electronic warfare and information operations." The ship is expected to have about 32 vertical launching system cells.
Work is expected to be completed by September 2021.
