Lockheed Martin Corp., Missiles and Fire Control, Orlando, Florida, is being awarded a $9,638,771 cost-plus-fixed-fee modification to previously awarded basic order agreement N00164-11-G-JQ97-0015 for the procurement of the turret electronic unit (TEU) versatile performance switching production requirements, including test equipment station development and validation; circuit card assembly manufacture; test requirement document production; and engineering drawing consolidation, review and release. The TEU is a component of the Target Sight System (TSS) that is integrated into the Marine Corps AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopter.  The TSS provides target identification and tracking, passive targeting for integrated weapons, including Hellfire missiles, and a laser-designation capability supporting friendly laser-guided weapons.  The TSS integration into AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopters is part of the Marine Corps H-1 upgrades program for the remanufacture of legacy aircraft with state of the art designs incorporated into the existing fleet of AH-1Ws, converting them to AH-1Zs.  Work will be performed in Orlando, Florida (94 percent); and Ocala, Florida (six percent), and is expected to be completed by June 2017. Fiscal 2014 and 2015 aircraft procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $9,638,771 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.  The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Indiana, is the contracting activity.
