Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has announced it has been awarded a seven-year contract from the US Navy worth up to more than USD 500 million to build and deliver more than 200+ electronic Consolidated Automated Support Systems (eCASS) to maximize aircraft readiness, the company said.
The previous Navy CASS contract awarded in 2000 to Lockheed Martin was worth USD 287 million.
Since 2010, Lockheed Martin has delivered more than 80 eCASS stations to the Navy, as part of its transition from the legacy CASS testing stations to the smaller, faster and more reliable eCASS.
