Lockheed scores 2nd warship contract this year with work in Orlando

Lockheed Martin Corp.’s Rotary & Mission Systems division in east Orlando scooped up another warship contract shortly after getting its first one of the year earlier this month.

The U.S. Navy awarded the Bethesda, Maryland-based defense giant a $20.2 million, five-year contract to perform engineering and support services for the DDG 51 new construction ship program and DDG 51 midlife modernization program. Nearly all of the work will be done in Orlando at the Rotary & Mission Systems office where many of Lockheed Martin’s simulation training programs are built. Those programs help show the military how to operate and repair equipment and vehicles. A smaller part of the work will happen in Baltimore. Read more here.
