Lockheed Martin Upgrades Romanian System
Lockheed Martin completed installation of an air defense and communications network modernization project for the Romanian Air Force, the company said Wednesday. Lockheed Martin said the project enhances the air defense and command and control capabilities of Romania’s Air Sovereignty Operations Center (ASOC) by extending the air space management system’s radar, voice and data link communication network. “This project provides the Romanian Air Force with significantly improved situational awareness as well as modern command and control capabilities that are interoperable with other NATO assets,” said Rick Udicious, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s Tactical Systems business. Lockheed Martin was awarded the initial contract in 2004 by the Romanian Ministry of Defense to extend and enhance the capabilities of the ASOC.
