The U.S. Department of Defense inform it has awarded contract modifications to Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and to BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair as follows:

1. Lockheed Martin Mission Systems
Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training, Liverpool, New York, is being awarded a $31,777,262 modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-13-C-6292) to exercise options for the production of nine TB-37/U Multi-Function Towed Array (MFTA) production units, tow cables, electro-optical slip rings, drogues, and shipping products and the performance of engineering services.

The TB-37/U MFTA is the next generation passive and active sonar receiver. It affords several enhancements to the AN/SQR-19 Tactical Towed Array System allowing greater coverage, increased capability/reliability, and reduced obsolescence. The TB-37/U MFTA significantly contributes to the capability of surface ships to detect, localize and prosecute undersea threats and is a critical sensor to a combat systems suite. Work will be performed in Liverpool, New York (66 percent), Millersville, Maryland (33 percent), and Marion, Massachusetts (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by July 2016.
2. BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair
BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair, Norfolk, Virginia, is being awarded a $12,361,701 modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-10-C-4308) for USS Mason (DDG 87) fiscal 2014 selected restricted availability.

A selected restricted availability includes the planning and execution of depot-level maintenance, alterations, and modifications that will update and improve the ship's military and technical capabilities.

Work will be performed in Norfolk, Virginia, and is expected to be completed by October 2014.
