Lockheed bags another periscope imaging contract
The U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems a $119 million contract extension for further work on the U.S. Navy’s Integrated Submarine Imaging Systems (ISIS) program.
ISIS is a system that captures and distributes high-definition video and photographic data into submarine periscopes.
It allows submariners to use both the optical light path of existing submarine periscopes, and images and videos from periscope-mounted cameras that can be remotely controlled by a conning officer.
Lockheed’s services will include design, development, testing, reverse engineering, technology insertion/refreshment, engineering services, field engineering services, and system support.
Work on the current contract is expected to be completed by 2018.
