The US Government Accountability Office denied the Lockheed Martin protest on the contract award for the US Navy Broad Area Maritime Surveillance program.
Lockheed received word of the GAO’s denial late on Friday, and has just issued this statement.
“Lockheed Martin is disappointed in the outcome of the Government Accountability Office’s recommendation to support the original Broad Area Maritime Surveillance decision. We look forward to further reviewing the documents to better understand the evaluation.
Lockheed Martin protests contract awards infrequently and is committed to proposing and delivering best value solutions for our customers’ mission requirements. We look forward to working with the
Navy on future programs and opportunities.” U.S.
Lockheed teamed with General Atomics to offer the Mariner version of the Predator B UAV, which included an Israeli sensor. The other losing bidder, the Boeing/Gulfstream G550 team, did not protest.
The USN selected the Northrop Grumman RQ-4N for the award.
