Lockheed Martin Wins $85m US Army Q-53 Counterfire Radar Contract


Q-53 Counterfire

The United States Army has awarded defense contractor Lockheed Martin a contract worth $85 million to supply them with more AN/TPQ-53s, a counter-fire target acquisition radar.

The contract specifies that Lockheed Martin will supply the Army with seven additional units. This will add to the order they received in June of this year, calling for an upgrade to nineteen of the Q-53 radars.

TPQ-53 radar systems are useful for protecting troops against attacks from enemy forces. They are easy to use for the soldiers, and have proven to be effective in combat. It provides the user with the target location of indirect fire systems, giving them accurate information on where it is coming from and how to counter it. What makes it unique is the adaptability it shows when facing uncooperative adversaries and changing missions. This is becoming more and more necessary due to the geographical layout of where warfare is taking place now. The radars have been used extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan for this reason.

"Soldiers can rapidly deploy the truck-mounted Q-53 and quickly determine the source of enemy fire,

said Bob Stelmack, Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training Q-53 program manager.

"The 55 systems Lockheed Martin has delivered to the US Army give troops proven, advanced protection when they need it most."

Lockheed Martin, the world’s biggest defense contractor, has been under contract for these radar systems since 2007. So far fifty-five systems have been delivered to the US Army over the last eight years, both on-budget and on-time. They will provide a total of ninety-seven when it’s all said and done. The delivery dates for the remaining units remains undisclosed. They will be constructed at the company’s facilities in New York, New Jersey, and Florida.

The Army is expected to award a full-rate production contract covering what is predicted to be seventy-seven additional systems by early next year.
