In today’s rapidly changing battlespace, our adversaries are using technology to their advantage to turn the most commonplace devices into explosives. The U.S. Navy recently approved Symphony Block 40, Lockheed Martin’s (NYSE: LMT) counter-improvised explosive device system, which provides enhanced capabilities that allow partner nations to combat ever-changing threats.

Symphony Block 40 is an open architecture system developed with the latest technologies to address new and emerging threats. This system simultaneously jams select or multiple electronic signals used to trigger a radio-controlled (RC) IED. The jammer is a small, vehicle-mounted system with an open architecture design that provides continuous coverage across the entire threat spectrum, as well as includes updated capabilities for maximum effectiveness, security, and response.

“Symphony Block 40 builds on the proven performance and 10 years of experience protecting warfighters.  The system’s enhanced capabilities will give men and women in uniform the latest technology to counter rapidly evolving threats so they can complete their missions,” said Joe Ottaviano, Director, Electronic Warfare, Lockheed Martin.

The United States and its allies rely on Symphony to protect warfighters in an unpredictable future.  The Symphony product line is the only counter-IED systems of its kind approved by the U.S. government for foreign military sale to allied, coalition and partner nations.

More than 4,500 Block 10/20 variant systems currently support U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other areas of conflict.

Work on the Symphony line of products is done in Clearwater, Florida, Manassas, Virginia, and Syracuse, New York, under an indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Navy.

Lockheed Martin provides global electronic warfare solutions through a unique open architecture product platform and open business model. In the air, on land, and at sea, Lockheed Martin pioneers advanced technologies to control the electromagnetic spectrum, and develops disruptive technologies to outpace adversary threats. The key to success lies not only in the capability of the systems, but integration of those systems across platforms to offer a complete picture of the battle space and unimpeded use of the electromagnetic spectrum for the warfighter.
