Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems in Eagan MN is the world’s largest producer of open systems, Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) based computing, display screen, and networking equipment for military applications.

The Q-70 is also used in the naval systems of Australia, Germany, Japan, Norway, and Spain.
The Q-70 program aims to capture the latest commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology, achieve reliability through ruggedization, and apply open system solutions so the results interconnect with combat, shipboard control, damage control, navigation, and communication systems.
Work will be performed in Clearwater, FL (90%) and St. Paul, MN (1%), and is expected to be complete by July 2010. The contract was not competitively procured. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington Navy Yard, DC issued the contract (N00024-05-D-5130).
