USA: Lockheed Martin Snatches USD 19.2 Mln Aegis Deal

Lockheed Martin Snatches USD 19

Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training, based in Moorestown, New Jersey, has been assigned with a contract modification to exercise options for fiscal 2013 Aegis Platform Systems Engineering Agent activities and Aegis Modernization Advanced Capability Build engineering.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee, cost-plus-award-fee contract is worth USD 19.2 million.

The Platform Systems Engineering Agent manages the in-service combat systems configurations, as well as the integration of new or upgraded capability into CG 47 and DDG 51 class ships.

Lockheed Martin managed to scoop up a $100 million contract as the Aegis Combat System Engineering Agent (CSEA) in March 2013.

The tendering process saw a tight competition for the Aegis system between Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Raytheon. The  U.S. Navy and Lockheed developed the system in the 1970s.  Aegis has been managed by the company ever since.

Work will be performed in Moorestown, N.J., and is expected to be completed by September 2013.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
