Under this new indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, Lockheed Martin will offer a range of technical services to SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific at shore stations throughout the world and onboard U.S. ships in port and at sea.

Lockheed Martin and another company were selected to compete for up to $5.1 million during the one-year contract. The government may award up to four one-year option periods as well.
The areas of work covered by this contract include engineering, fabrication, installation, logistics and administrative support, design, testing and evaluation, and rapid prototype development.
