Lockheed Martin has completed computer program development and testing for the Hobart class Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD), the Royal Australian Navy’s Aegis-equipped ships.
The computer programs have been approved by the US Navy.
Tests were conducted over a two-week period at the Navy's land-based test facility, the Vice Admiral James H. Doyle Combat Systems Engineering Development Site in New Jersey.
"The Aegis Weapon System enables navies around the world to protect their citizens and their nations from continuously evolving threats,” said Doug Wilhelm, director of international Aegis programs for Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems & Sensors business.
“We look forward to working with the US and allied navies to continue to provide proven anti-air warfare capability on a global scale.”
The Hobart class will be capable of simultaneous operations in a multi-warfare environment, including anti-air, anti-surface, anti-submarine and naval gunfire support roles.
