Lockheed Martin Corp. secured a seven-year contract worth approximately $500 million with the U.S. Navy to build and deliver more than 200 electronic Consolidated Automated Support Systems, or eCASS.
Lockheed said the test equipment is meant to maximize aircraft readiness. Sailors use it to troubleshoot and repair aircraft electronics on shore and at sea.
The gear can save money by avoiding repairs to avionics or sending parts back to the manufacturer, according to the Navy Naval Air Systems Command.
Lockheed said it has delivered more than 80 eCASS stations to the Navy since 2010, and the last Navy CASS contract was worth $287 million.
