  • 20-Jan-2010 09:27 EST

The U.S. Navy awarded Lockheed Martin a $33 million contract for the technology demonstration phase of the Joint and Allied Threat Awareness System (JATAS)—the next-generation threat warning system designed to protect Navy and Marine Corps assault aircraft for increased survivability in hostile environments. Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will partner with DRS Infrared Technologies in Dallas, TX, and Goodrich ISR Systems in Danbury, CT, to design, develop, and demonstrate JATAS prototypes during a 16-month period of performance ending January 2011. JATAS will provide rotary-wing assault aircraft with an integrated IR-based missile warning, laser warning, and hostile fire indication defensive suite.
