Cobham awarded a $10M+ contract for multiple waveguide components and assemblies to support production of Lockheed Martin AN/SPY-1D.

EXETER, New Hampshire - Cobham was recently awarded a contract valued at more than $10M for multiple waveguide components and assemblies to support production of Lockheed Martin's AN/SPY-1D three-dimensional fixed-phased array radar. AN/SPY-1D is the primary air search radar on the Aegis Combat System, providing targeting and tracking data in the most demanding environments. Work under the contract will be performed by the Exeter, New Hampshire site of Cobham Integrated Electronic Solutions, a business unit of the Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions sector.


"We are proud to continue our longstanding support to the Navy and Lockheed Martin on this leading maritime radar system and its Asia-Pacific expansion," said Jeff Hassannia, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Technology for Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions.
