Lockheed works on AN/SLQ-32(V)6 design
US Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Lockheed Martin a $14.1 million contract modification to deliver design agent engineering services for the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 shipboard EW suite.
The Raytheon-made AN/SLQ-32(V) is the core EW system for USN surface ships; according to Shephard Defence Insight, it achieves EW objectives by providing full threat band frequency coverage, instantaneous azimuth coverage, 100% probability of intercept and simultaneous response to multiple threats.
Version 6 includes receiver, antenna and combat system interface upgrades developed under the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 programme, adding the High Gain High Sensitivity adjunct sensor developed under SEWIP Block 1B3.
Work will take place in Syracuse, New York, and is expected to be completed by November 2021.
