Lockheed Martin to Produce Conformal Arrays

December 16, 2013

Lockheed Martin Mission Systems & Training, Liverpool, N.Y., is being awarded a $24,462,051 fixed-price incentive, firm-fixed-price, and cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the production and support of AN/BQS-25 low-cost conformal arrays (LCCA). The AN/BQS-25 LCCA is a passive planar array mounted on the aft submarine sail structure that is integrated with the acoustic rapid commercial-off-the-shelf insertion AN/BQQ-10 system to provide situational awareness and collision avoidance for improved tactical control in high-density environments. This contract includes options, which if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $92,476,516. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington D.C., is the contracting activity (N00024-14-C-6227).

SEDNA Digital Solutions, L.L.C., Manassas, Virginia, is being awarded a $13,342,090 modification to previously awarded contract for professional support services to Team Submarine in support of engineering services and support for the development, integration, test, demonstration and certification of a high-fidelity front-end simulation for common processing systems, providing improved technology for Navy High Fidelity Sensor Level Stimulation and Common Processing System in support of USS Virginia class submarines and other submarine/surface ship systems. These services will provide for the continued engineering, fabrication, test, installation, and training services for the analysis, design and, prototyping of components related to open architecture concepts for an improved capability for both legacy and future variants of Navy acoustic systems. This effort includes exploring new approaches to high-fidelity stimulation for testing sensor interfaces and processing, as well as developing new or augmenting existing capabilities as required to meet the acoustic processing needs for the Navy's submarine sonar systems. Technology insertions and advanced processing builds are bi-annual updates to the existing sonar configurations installed on US Navy Submarines. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Navy Yard, D.C., is the contracting activity.
