Raytheon Co. and Lockheed Martin successfully completed the first significant integration milestone between Raytheon's Global Positioning System (GPS) Next Generation Operational Control System (OCX) and Lockheed Martin's GPS III satellite system.
The Lockheed Martin team developing the U.S. Air Force’s next generation Global Positioning System III satellites has completed thermal vacuum testing for the Navigation Payload Element (NPE) of the GPS III Non-Flight Satellite Testbed (GNST).
Lockheed Martin received a $197 million contract option from the U.S. Army for Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Unitary rocket production.
The Lockheed Martin team developing the U.S. Air Force’s next generation Global Positioning System III satellites has turned on power to the system module of the program’s first spacecraft, designated GPS III Space Vehicle One (SV-1). The milestone is a key indication the team is on track to deliver the first satellite for launch availability in 2014.
The U.S. Navy awarded Lockheed Martin a $57 million contract to upgrade the fleet’s electronic warfare defenses against anti-ship missile threats.
Micro-Coax announced that it has been recognized by Lockheed Martin’s Aeronautics Division for providing 100 percent on-time delivery with zero quality defects.
Lockheed Martin has integrated two of the most important components onto its fourth Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite for the U.S. Navy. Recently engineers mated the multi-beam assembly, which hosts 16 ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas for distributed, global communications coverage. Earlier this year, the team delivered and integrated the vehicle’s communications system module. With bus and payload now together, the satellite is entering its first system check-outs before progressing to environmental test.
Northrop Grumman Corp. will provide 48 more self-deploying, monopole JIB antennas for Global Positioning System (GPS III) satellites under a follow-on contract from Lockheed Martin Corp.. The work will be carried out by Astro Aerospace, a strategic business unit of Northrop Grumman.
Transline Technology, a California-based printed circuit board manufacturer, has been recognized by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for 100 percent on-time delivery and zero quality deffects for 12 consecutive months for the year 2012. TTI also received this award for the year 2011, which means that they have had a 24 consecutive month track record of delivering 100 percent on time delivery and zero defects in total.
