Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services won a $10 million cost-plus-fixed-fee Navy contract for development, engineering, and testing of reliable acoustic path vertical line array (RAPVLA) sensor systems for distributed netted systems. RAPVLA sensor systems are used by surface ships for deep-water anti-submarine warfare (ASW) as part of the Navy’s distributed and netted ASW approach. The systems are deployed from tactical naval ships using buoys. Lockheed Martin will perform the work at its facilities in Arlington, VA, (40%); Riviera Beach, FL, (30%); Greensboro, NC, (25%); Groton, CN, (5%) and expects to complete it by Sept 2010. This contract was competitively procured by broad agency announcement, with proposals solicited and offers received via FedBizOpps by the Naval Sea Systems Command (N00024-09-C-5215).
