SAN DIEGO, April 2 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has selected Lockheed Martin to compete for Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division information-fusion task orders.
U.S. company Lockheed Martin said it will lead a team that includes Overwatch Tactical Operations and SIM-Tech to compete for future information-fusion task orders.
Lockheed Martin was selected by the Navy as one of two companies competing for the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division task orders worth up to $103.8 million.
Officials said information fusion is a Defense Department initiative to utilize various data sources -- including infrared images, video, human intelligence and others -- simultaneously.
"Our team continues to develop sophisticated algorithms that advance the 'state of the possible' in different fusion and tracking domains from subsurface to space," Jim Quinn, a Lockheed Martin official, said in a statement.
"We are proud to provide the U.S. Navy with capabilities that will continue to improve real-time situational awareness at every echelon."
