Lockheed Martin has won a $46.5 million contract to support the Army’s Extended Area Protection and Survivability (EAPS) Integrated Demonstration (ID) Program.
The EAPS ID is a science and technology program focused on developing and demonstrating critical technologies necessary to bridge the gap between the initial counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) capability and the enhanced protection envisioned in the future, Lockheed said on its website.
Under the contract, the company will demonstrate the technology to counter rocket, artillery and mortar threats and other select targets, the Defense Department said in a release.
Work is expected to wrap up in Sept. 26, 2019.
Lockheed Martin was the only company to bid on this contract, the Defense Department said.
