The U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Lockheed Martin a $148.9 million contract for full rate production of Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 subsystems (AN/SLQ-32(V)6 and AN/SLQ-32A(V)6) and SEWIP AN/SLQ-32C(V)6 systems.

SEWIP is an evolutionary acquisition and incremental development program to upgrade the existing AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system. SEWIP provides enhanced shipboard electronic warfare for early detection, analysis, threat warning, and protection from anti-ship missiles. It is an integrated shipboard combat system that can be managed and controlled manually from a console or semi-manually/auto by the host combat management system.

SEWIP Block 2 and SEWIP AN/SLQ-32C(V)6 will expand upon the receiver/antenna group necessary to keep capabilities current with the pace of the threat and to yield improved system integration.

The U.S. Navy expects the work on the upgrades to be completed by November 2019.
