ROCHESTER, Minn., 1 July 2015. Domaille Engineering LLC won a multimillion-dollar contract from Lockheed Martin [NYSE:LMT] to manufacture thermal management assemblies for the Space Fence Program.
Space Fence, an advanced ground-based radar system, with its enhanced sensitivity to detect and track smaller targets, will greatly increase the currently maintained catalogue of space objects. With better timeliness and improved surveillance coverage, the system will not only catalogue the orbits of objects but also protect space assets against potential collisions that will ultimately multiply the debris problem in space. Lockheed Martin will deliver up to two advanced S-Band phased array radars for the Space Fence program. The Space Fence radar system will improve space situational awareness of the existing Space Surveillance Network.
This contract award represents a continuation of the ongoing relationship between Lockheed Martin and Domaille Engineering in providing high-tech, state-of-the-art manufacturing subsystems.
“We are very pleased to again be working with Lockheed Martin on this strategic radar program,” says Domaille Engineering President Tim Kanne. “We have recently added new personnel to our skilled team to accommodate the aggressive production schedule and anticipate additional staffing growth this year and beyond.”
Deliveries of the thermal management assemblies associated with this contract will begin mid-2015 and are expected to extend into mid-2016.
