U.S. Navy anti-submarine warfare (ASW) experts has selected the Lockheed Martin Corp. Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense segment to upgrade the Navy's common Integrated Undersea Sensor System (IUSS) Integrated Common Processor (ICP) system to enhance underwater surveillance and situational awareness. The IUSS helps Navy operators locate and track surface ships and submarines in wide areas of the world.
Lockheed Martin won a $24 million contract from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego to provide sonar signal processing technology updates and new concepts to IUSS signal processing, as well as to provide automatic submarine detection and tracking to reduce operator workload, simplify operator training, and keep system development costs down.
"The capabilities we are providing will help detect, track, and localize undersea threats faster and more accurately," says Jim Quinn, vice president of Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense.
