Lockheed Martin awarded eCASS contract

20th February 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin will deliver 63 Electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS) stations to the US Navy under a $166 million contract, with full rate production approved by the navy, the company announced on 16 February.

eCASS is an avionics repair system. It is compatible with more than 550 test programme sets that allow avionics systems to be tested for a range of platforms. The new eCASS technology has a smaller footprint than the legacy CASS.

The system's software design is predicated on Lockheed Martin's LM-STAR standard test operations and run-time manager, making eCASS capable of supporting the advanced avionics of the F-35.

Laura Frank, vice president of Integrated Test and Logistics at Lockheed Martin, said: 'The navy actively participated in the development and design of eCASS – it's truly been a great partnership. This is a great example of how we're looking to leverage commonality across our organisation to deliver a highly cost-effective test capability that's prepared to support our customers well into the future.'
