Lockheed Martin to design and upgrade TI-20 AN/BLQ-10 Electronic


Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems, Syracuse, New York, is awarded a $13,227,000 engineering services, cost-plus-incentive-fee modification to previously awarded delivery order under indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the design, prototyping and qualification testing for the TI-20 AN/BLQ-10.

The contract includes the design, prototyping and qualification testing for the TI-20 AN/BLQ-10.

The AN/BLQ-10 system is an open architecture platform to accommodate current and future mission needs and technology upgrades.

The AN/BLQ-10 submarine EW system processes radar signals through masts and periscopes to detect threats such as counter detection, collision and target locations. Crews can rapidly analyse and identify critical signals to determine hostile, neutral or friendly situations.

The system's first technology insertion in 2008 added a subsystem to intercept some low-probability-of-intercept radar signals. Fielded upgrades from the 2010 technology insertions updated commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processors and displays, and Improved Communications Acquisition and Direction Finding (ICADF) system.

Work will be performed in Syracuse, New York, and is expected to be complete by February 2021.
