Lockheed Martin to develop Frigate LCS combat management systems

Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training has received a $67.9 million contract to develop combat management systems for the frigate version of the U.S. Navy’s littoral combat ship (LCS).

The contract will see the company perform hardware and software development and integration. LM will also provide combat system technical data packages.

The U.S. Navy is working on improving the proposed 40-unit fleet of littoral combat ships and a task force has spent more than a year analyzing new and existing designs and concepts, including modified LCS concepts. The modified littoral combat ships will be referred to as frigates.

Frigate LCS will discard the mission modules and will keep surface and anti-submarine warfare modules while the mine countermeasure package will be omitted.

Lockheed Martin will perform the work in Moorestown, New Jersey and is expected to complete it by June 2021.
