Lockheed Martin awarded US$20.6 million for Fire Control
"The upgrade will ensure robust capability of the Royal Australian Navy FFG fleet against threats that have developed since the introduction of the current combat system," said Paul Johnson, managing director of Lockheed Martin Australia. "The project complements our Aegis combat system integration work currently underway on the Air Warfare Destroyer project."
"The MK92 upgrade represents the very first introduction of SM-2 into an FFG-class surface combatant anywhere in the world," said Stan Ozga, Lockheed Martin's director for Naval Radar Programs. "With this contract, Lockheed Martin will deliver a major improvement to the FFG anti-air warfare capability and continue more than two decades of support to the operational needs of the Royal Australian Navy customer."
