United States Department Of Defense Receives $12 Million Contract to Lockheed Martin in Liverpool, NY

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer announced that United States Department Of Defense awarded a $12 million contract to Lockheed Martin in Liverpool, NY to provide contractor support, including repairs and field support, to Q-53 radar systems used by the U.S. Army oversees. Specifically, the Lockheed plant in Onondaga County will continue to service the eight Q-53 radars currently used in Afghanistan, the 24 that are used domestically, and in Germany and Hawaii. Schumer noted that this contract will allow the Army to continue using these radar systems instead of suffering from large scale logistical changes. Schumer noted that the $12 million award will allow workers in Liverpool to provide contract support for the Lockheed Martin AN/TPQ-53 counter fire target acquisition radar, which is a new generation of counterfire sensor with the flexibility to adapt to uncooperative adversaries and changing missions. This radar system helps soldiers quickly locate and neutralize mortar and rocket threats. Schumer emphasized that this is especially important for troops who are fighting in unconventional battlefields and irregular warfare. This innovative sensor is replacing aging medium-range radars now in the Army's inventory.
