SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Lockheed Martin will continue supporting engineering and fielding efforts for the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) AN/SLQ-32(V)6 under a $13.9 million engineering services contract awarded by the U.S. Navy, the company said in a Jan. 13 release.
Services include engineering efforts to perform analysis and design, document engineering baselines and modification of systems, subsystems and components for test and evaluation.
“We are proud to continue providing the U.S. Navy with ongoing engineering services for the SEWIP program. Our partnership and commitment to the Navy and to keeping our warfighters safe is our No. 1 priority,” said Hamid Salim, vice president of advanced product solutions for Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems. “The SEWIP system enables electromagnetic spectrum dominance for our naval fleet.”
AN/SLQ-32(V)6 incorporates electronic support receiver, antenna and combat system interface upgrades as well as adding the high gain/high sensitivity adjunct sensor, the specific emitter identification adjunct sensor, the AN/SLA-10D blanker and a liquid conditioning unit.
This award is part of a five-year contract totaling $75 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed at the corporation’s electronic warfare center of excellence in Syracuse, New York.
