Lockheed Martin, Maritime Systems and Sensors, Syracuse, N.Y., is being awarded an $11m firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for the System Development and Demonstration Phase of the Expendable Mine Neutralization System (EMNS). The EMNS is a mine identification and neutralization system for support of mine neutralization operations from MCM-1 Class ships. It will replace the aging and maintenance intensive AN/SLQ-48 Mine Neutralization System and will provide ships with improved reconnaissance capability, positive identification of mine threats, reduced neutralization mission times, and reduced maintenance in both time and required spares. Work will be performed in Syracuse, N.Y. (77 percent); Corpus Christi, Texas (8 percent); Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada (6 percent); Owego, N.Y. (5 percent); Waterlooville, Hampshire, United Kingdom (3 percent); Reston, Va. (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by December 2009. Contract funds in the amount of $11m will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The contract was competitively procured and advertised via the Internet, with two proposals received. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
