WASHINGTON,25 Oct. 2010. Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] received delivery orders totaling $138 million from the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command Acquisition Center for 200 new systems, support services, and equipment associated with the Vehicle Optics Sensor Systems (VOSS).

The Gyrocam VOSS, a vehicle-mounted sensor system, can be mast-mounted on virtually any land vehicle or expeditionary system for remote surveillance needs, and it provides high-resolution color, night vision, and thermal sensors in a 15-inch class gyro-stabilized gimbal.

These delivery orders are new releases against a multi-year Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity contract awarded in 2008. The equipment will be produced at the Lockheed Martin Gyrocam Systems facility in Sarasota, Fla., and the period of performance will continue through the first half of 2011.

Lockheed Martin Gyrocam Systems has installed more than 800 Gyrocam camera systems on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles throughout Afghanistan and Iraq.
