Lockheed Martin Demonstrates Gyrocam Sensor Maritime Capability With U.S. Navy





ORLANDO, Fla., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] recently completed a series of successful demonstrations of its Gyrocam 15-inch Dual Sensor and 15-inch Triple Sensor in a realistic military maritime environment.

The demonstration was conducted as part of a cooperative research and development effort with the Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Program. That program was established to help accelerate the delivery of innovative maritime technologies across all armed services.

During the demonstration in Virginia Beach, Va., U.S. Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) sailors used the 15-inch gyro-stabilized optical sensors in both day and night exercises. After successfully tracking items of interest and acquiring on-the-move, high-resolution electro-optical and thermal video, end-users provided immediate feedback on the technology.

"Lockheed Martin's 15-inch Gyrocam sensors provided NECC sailors with an elevated, unobstructed, 360-degree surveillance advantage," said Dave Huber, senior program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Our Gyrocam sensors can detect and track items of interest beyond line of sight, giving sailors the critical time needed to deploy proper defensive measures."

Gyrocam maritime sensor systems support long-range search-and-rescue, counter-terrorism, drug interdiction, patrol and surveillance operations. Lockheed Martin has extensive experience mounting gyro-stabilized optical sensor systems on maritime craft, ranging from patrol boats to naval frigates. Gyrocam maritime sensor systems have the capability to see through fog, haze and complete darkness.

Lockheed Martin's Gyrocam sensor systems are designed for rapid deployment and have been delivered to all branches of the U.S. military and 22 state, local and federal law enforcement agencies. More than 1,100 Gyrocam sensor systems have been fielded on U.S. Army and Marine Corps vehicles for combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Additionally, Gyrocam systems maintain a 95 percent operational readiness rate over millions of hours of use.

Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control is a 2012 recipient of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for performance excellence. The Malcolm Baldrige Award represents the highest honor that can be awarded to American companies for their achievements in leadership, strategic planning, customer relations, measurement, analysis, workforce excellence, operations and results.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services.  The Corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
