Lockheed Martin has won a $78.5 million contract to deliver 29 electronic Consolidated Automated Support Systems (eCASS) to the Navy.
The eCASS replaced the CASS test equipment originally fielded in the early 1990s and is used by sailors and marines to troubleshoot and repair aircraft assemblies at sea or on shore, allowing them to return equipment to readiness status quickly and efficiently, Lockheed Martin said in a release.
The first system was fielded in November 2014.
Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will provide 29 eCASS radio frequency systems; 14 self-maintenance and test calibration operational test program sets; 12 calibration equipment kits; 29 shore installation kits; six ship installation kits; five test program sets development suites; seven high power mission equipment kits; 21 electro-optic MEKs; and one production asset.
Work will be performed in Orlando, Fla., Hunt Valley, Md., North Reading, Mass., Irvine, Calif., San Diego, Calif., Austin, Texas, Minneapolis, Minn., Bohemia, N.Y., Everett, Wash., and Woodstock, N.Y., and is expected to be completed in July 2017.
