DSEI 2017: Elbit Systems & Lockheed Martin Partner Royal Navy Maritime EW

MEWP: significant procurement to upgrade Royal Navy’s Electronic Warfare capabilities

Elbit Systems UK and Lockheed Martin UK have signed a strategic teaming agreement to partner on the Maritime Electronic Warfare Programme (MEWP) for the Royal Navy.
The MEWP is a significant procurement to upgrade the Royal Navy’s Electronic Warfare capabilities. Delivered in increments, the upgraded system will be fielded on the Royal Navy’s frigates, destroyers and amphibious assault ships, with the programme expanding to the wider fleet including submarines in due course.

Elbit Systems has over three decades of experience in the design of development of high performance naval systems. Lockheed Martin has a proven track record of developing and integrating complex maritime systems into the US Navy, the Royal Navy and a wide variety of international naval vessels.
The partnership between the two companies, which was announced at DSEI in London, will bring together valuable experience and unique capabilities to develop an outstanding solution for this crucial UK programme.

“We are delighted to be working with Lockheed Martin to offer an innovative and comprehensive proposal to meet the Royal Navy’s future requirements, using our complementary skills and experience we believe we are a strong team able to propose a highly attractive solution to meet the programme needs,” Martin Fausset of Elbit Systems UK Ltd said.

By working together, both companies can use their extensive experience in maritime technology and systems integration to provide a highly capable, proven and value for money solution to address the immediate and evolving need for an upgraded Maritime Electronic Warfare capability for the UK’s Royal Navy,” Paul Livingston, Vice President of Lockheed Martin UK Integrated Systems, concluded.
