$125M to Upgrade AEGIS Combat System
Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors in Moorestown, NJ received $125.8 million to provide for AEGIS Combat System baseline upgrades. The AEGIS system on the USA’s CG-47 Ticonderoga Class cruisers and DDG-51 Arleigh Burke Class destroyers (plus frigate and destroyer classes in Australia, Japan, Korea, Norway, and Spain) is both a very advanced radar, and a combat control system that integrates the ship’s array of sensors and weapons.
Services will include providing material, equipment, supplies and technical engineering required to define, design, develop, integrate, test and deliver AEGIS baseline computer programs for combat system upgrades, which may be further clarified by written technical instructions. Work on this cost-plus-award-fee modification under previously awarded contract N00024-98-C-5197 will be performed in Moorestown, N.J., and is expected to be completed by September 2007. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC issued this contract.
