A team of students from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, will use this year's Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) exhibition to present a revolutionary man-powered submarine. The group, known as WASUB, designed the craft to break the world speed record for a single-person propeller-driven submarine.
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 Co
Lockheed Martin Corp., Mission Systems and Sensors, Manassas, Va., is being awarded a $13,278,778 modification to existing cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for fiscal 2012 Acoustic Rapid Commercial-Off-The-Shelf Insertion (A-RCI) TI-12 system upgrades. The contract provides funding for the development and production of the A-RCI and common acoustics processing for Technology Insertion 12 (TI-12) through Technology Insertion 14 (TI-14) for the U.S. submarine fleet. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems Incorporated, Fairfax, Virginia, is being awarded a $6,775,647 contract modification for the procurement of the Multipurpose Processor and Total Ship Monitoring System spares under the Acoustic Rapid Commercial Off the Shelf Insertion (ARCI) program requirements for fiscal 2012. The multipurpose processor is used within the ARCI program to improve submarine acoustic processing capability on Seawolf and Virginia class submarines. ARCI is a sonar system that integrates and improves towed array, hull array, sphere array, and other ship sensor processing. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
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.
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Maritime Systems and Sensors, Manassas, Virginia, is being awarded an $11 million option exercise modification for the manufacture of hardware for the Acoustic Rapid Commercial-Off-The-Shelf Insertion (ARCI) System Improvement and Integration Program for SSGN 726 and 729, and SSN 781 submarines. ARCI is a sonar system that integrates and improves towed array, hull array, sphere array, and other ship sensor processing, through rapid insertion of commercial-off-the-shelf based hardware and software. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Mission Systems and Sensors, Manassas, Virginia, is being awarded an $8 million contract for lightweight wide-aperture array inboard equipment and associated engineering and technical support for two Virginia-class submarines. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
