Lockheed to support Navy automated logistics

Lockheed Martin Corp. will make sure that a Navy system that tests electronic components functions at peak performance under a $26 million contract.

Under the agreement, the company will furnish maintenance and support services for the Navy's Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS), company officials said. The Bethesda, Md., company plans to use a performance-based logistics (PBL) approach in keeping with Defense Department preferences. The contract is estimated to be worth $221 over five years if all options are exercised, the officials said.

To achieve its project goals, Lockheed Martin will use a repair, overhaul and inventory management application that it developed known as the Logistics Information System (LIS). LIS allows Navy personnel to access information on the availability of materials, shipping status, vendor repair and return time, and other pertinent information.

The work entails providing PBL to as many as 500 Navy and Marine Corps communications navigation and instrumentation stations, the officials said. Lockheed Martin has supported CASS since 1994.

Lockheed Martin ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
