Lockheed Martin Wins USW System Contract

Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training, Manassas, Virginia, is being awarded a not-to-exceed $59,7 million modification to a previously awarded contract for the Navy’s fiscal 2014 AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 Surface Ship Undersea Warfare (USW) System and shore site development systems.


The AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 is a USW combat system with the capabilities to search, detect, classify, localize and track undersea contacts, and to engage and evade submarines, mine-like small objects and torpedo threats.

The contract is for development and production of the Technical Insertion 14 baseline of the AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 USW systems.

This contract combines purchases for the U.S. Navy and the government of Japan (25.4 percent) under the Foreign Military Sales Program.

Work will be performed in Lemont Furnace, Pennsylvania (56 percent); Syracuse, New York (23 percent); Clearwater, Florida (14 percent); and Owego, New York (7 percent), and is expected to be completed by August 2016.

Fiscal 2014 other procurement (Navy); foreign military sales; fiscal 2013, 2014 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy); and fiscal 2014 research and development contract funds in the amount of $29,864,153 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
