Lockheed Martin Freedom-variant FFG(X) Frigate conceptual design

Lockheed Martin has won a $7 million contract for Combat System Ship Integration and Test on Guided Missile Frigate (FFG(X)) new-construction ships.

The work executed under this contract includes combat system (CS) ship integration engineering support and test planning, conducting a waterfront CS ship integration and test program, post-delivery engineering support to government test teams, engineering services for CS ship integration and test and developing test program documents for FFG(X) ships, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.

According to the US Navy, the next-generation FFG(X) frigate will have "multi-mission capability to conduct air warfare, anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare, electronic warfare and information operations." The ship would have at least 32 vertical launching system cells and an AEGIS-based combat system.

Work is expected to be complete in June 2025.
