Lockheed Martin has been funded by the US Navy (USN) to begin low-rate initial production (LRIP) of the Advanced Off-Board Electronic Warfare (AOEW) capability.

Under the AOEW programme, the company's Rotary and Mission Systems business is developing the podded AN/ALQ-248 AOEW Active Mission Payload (AMP) to provide USN battle groups with enhanced electronic surveillance and countermeasure capabilities against anti-ship missile threats. The AOEW AMP is planned for deployment on MH-60R and MH-60S shipborne helicopters.

The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) on 29 September announced that it had awarded Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems a USD17.8 million firm-fixed-price contract modification to exercise options for AOEW LRIP units. Work is expected to complete by May 2024.

Offtake numbers were not disclosed. However, the navy has previously stated that it plans to procure four LRIP units under fiscal year (FY) 2021 funding.

Distinct improvement over a blip enhancer and prayer.
