US Navy Awards Contract to Lockheed for Enhancing Automated Maritime Surveillance

Lockheed Martin has received a contract worth $24M for offering new technology upgrades like high-end audio processing and also new concepts for identifying and surveying submarines.

Jim Quinn, VP of Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense has stated that they had partnered with the US Navy for several years to offer novel automated solutions to face unexpected perils and combat submarines. He added that their innovative technology will effectively identify underwater dangers.

The researchers of Lockheed Martin will enhance both hardware and software of U.S. Navy's common Integrated Undersea Sensor System or the Integrated Common Processor (ICP) system for helping users in identifying and tracing both level and sublevel sea interaction. A general workstation suitable for upcoming underwater sensors and platforms are offered by PMS485 which is effectively controlled by the Program Executive Office, Littoral Mine Warfare, which is suitable for immobile and hauled array systems.

Additionally, the company will enhance tracing and automation abilities for automated tracing of audio energy which is generated out of contact, thereby contributing to the initiatives of the US Navy for enhancing surveillance abilities as well as reducing overheads involved in system fabrication cost and operator workload.
