Lockheed Martin Unit Wins Navy Avionics Test Contracts

Lockheed Martin Information Systems, a unit of Lockheed Martin Corporation was awarded a contract worth as much as $287 million for continued production of the Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS), the U.S. Navy's standard avionics testing system.

CASS is the world's largest automated test support program and is the Navy's standard test equipment used to test avionics on aircraft carriers and in depots throughout the United States.

As a flexible automatic test equipment station, CASS eliminates some 25 unique testers that supported multiple electronic systems and reduces critical carrier space requirements by more than 30 percent.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will provide CASS stations through 2005.
