Lockheed Martin Wins $60 Million Navy Contract

By Patience Wait, Staff Writer

Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md., has been awarded a $60.2 million modification to its Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System development contract with the Navy.

The company's management and data systems group will enhance the weapons control system by integrating the Naval Fires Control System and a new capability that controls the launch of land attack missiles within the Tomahawk control system's hardware and software architecture.

The new system is called TLN, representing the three integrated capabilities: Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System, Land Attack Missile Fire Control System and Naval Fires Control System.

The new system will be able to support any future land attack missiles within one integrated system operated via common operator positions.

Initially, the system will provide mission planning and launch control for the Tomahawk missile family, mission planning and launch control of the Land Attack Standard Missile, and mission planning for the conventional five-inch gun weaponry.

The initial operating schedule for the weapons control system is 2003, with the new system scheduled for 2004.

Joining the Lockheed Martin division on the project are: Lockheed Martin's Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems operation and its technology services group; the Naval Surface Weapons Center, Dahlgren Division; General Dynamics Corp.; Litton Data Systems Inc.; DELEX Systems Inc.; and BAE Systems Inc.
