Lockheed wins $158.8M Navy contract for radar systems

Lockheed Martin has won a potentially $158.8 million contract to produce and field Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 systems for the Navy.

The base value of this contract is $147.5 million.

SEWIP is an acquisition program to upgrade the existing AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system, which provides Navy ships with radar, surveillance and radar-jamming capabilities.

Block 2 will improve the receiver and antenna group that is necessary to keep capabilities current with the pace of the threat and to yield improved system integration, according to the Navy’s website.

Work will be performed in Syracuse, N.Y., Lansdale, Penn., and Chelmsford, Mass., and is expected to wrap up in September 2017.
