Lockheed to Build Airborne Electronic Defense System for US Navy

Lockheed Martin will develop an airborne electronic defense system based on Sensor Open Systems Architecture with low size, weight and power requirements for the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R multimission helicopter.

The SOSA technology will use Altera’s Multi-Chip Package based on the company’s Agilex 9 SoC FPGA Direct RF-Series and will be built, tested and produced through the MH-60R program over the next 18 months.

The work, which will be performed with Intel and Altera, supports the Stimulating Transition for Advanced Microelectronics Packaging program for the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, Lockheed Martin said.

According to John Sotir, senior director of military aerospace and government business and state-of-the-art heterogeneous integration packaging at Altera, the collaboration through STAMP will accelerate the development of critical defense systems to enable force improvement.

The SOSA technology, equipped with U.S. built semiconductors, is essential to enhancing legacy systems and developing new capabilities to control the electromagnetic spectrum and ensure the safety of service members, said Deon Viergutz, vice president of spectrum convergence at Lockheed.

The STAMP project, managed by the National Security Technology Accelerator, was awarded through the Strategic and Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted Systems other transaction agreement.
