PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA (BNS): Lockheed Martin will continue to maintain the Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System (TTWCS), a critical system that integrates the launch hardware and software to provide weapon control for variants of the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile.

The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) exercised an option valued at $13 million on an existing software development contract to sustain TTWCS. The total contract value could reach $50.2 million if the three remaining options are exercised, according to a news release by Lockheed Martin.

"Over the decades, Lockheed Martin has worked closely with the Tomahawk Weapons System program office in the evolution of Tomahawk, often the first weapon employed when our nation goes to combat," Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR Systems with Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS-Defense, was quoted as saying in the release.

Under this contract, Lockheed Martin will continue to maintain and sustain TTWCS, one of three major components that comprise the Tomahawk Weapons System.

Lockheed Martin will also provide the software development, systems engineering, software and hardware deployment support needed to upgrade TTWCS, as well as any management required to continue the system upgrades to address significant hardware, software, and interoperability obsolescence issues.
