LM wins upgrade contract for USN ‘Slick-32’ EW system

2nd April 2013 - 16:55 GMT | by Jonathan Tringham in London


Lockheed Martin has announced a new $57 million contract to upgrade Block 2 of the US Navy’s Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP). 

Under the new agreement, Lockheed Martin will equip the ubiquitous AN/SLQ-32(V)2 Electronic Support Measures system with key enhancements to detect hostile electronic targeting.

The company previously won a competitive tender for the SEWIP Block 2 contract in November 2009 to upgrade the passive detection capabilities of the US fleet’s AN/SLQ-32 systems, known by operators as ‘Slick-32’. It was also required to establish a framework to facilitate future upgrades.
