US Navy contracts Lockheed Martin for OE-538B antenna upgrade

  • Authorities

The U.S. Navy has contracted Lockheed Martin Sippican for the Multifunction Mast Antenna System (OE-538B) upgrade to improve submarine communications.

Serving as a sub-contractor to Lockheed Martin Sippican, Mayflower Communications Company will deliver its Submarine Anti-Jam GPS Enhancement (SAGE) solution in support of the antenna upgrade.

The Mayflower SAGE, a variant of a small antenna system (SAS), was developed specifically for inclusion on submarine platforms to support U.S. Navy requirements for global position system (GPS) anti-jam (AJ).

Joseph Thomas, Mayflower’s Director of Government Programs, said: “The SAGE product has given Mayflower the opportunity to support a U.S. Navy National Strategic Level Platform and to expand into the next generation of small SWaP NAVWAR GPS Anti-Jam systems. The SAGE ensures we can continue to offer the warfighters the very latest and most efficient technology to support operations in an A2AD Environment.”
