SAN DIEGO (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a follow-on contract of worth $24 million, from the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command to provide technology updates and new concepts to detect and track submarines.

Under the contract, the advanced acoustic processing and tracking capabilities will enhance underwater surveillance and will increase situational awareness for the US Navy fleet.

“For more than 10 years we have provided the Navy with innovative automation technology to counter asymmetric threats and conduct anti-submarine warfare,” Jim Quinn, vice president -of Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense, said.

Lockheed Martin will also improve automation and localization capabilities to enable automatic detection and tracking of contact-generated acoustic energy (often described as lines on sonar grams).

These automation capabilities will support key Navy initiatives to improve detection and tracking capabilities well into the future while simultaneously reducing operator workload, simplifying operator training and limiting system development costs.
