Lockheed Martin Begins Testing of First Aegis Weapon System Equipped With SPY-1F Radar

MOORESTOWN, N.J., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IZAR and Lockheed Martin successfully performed initial activation of the first Aegis Weapon System equipped with the new SPY-1F radar aboard the Norwegian frigate Fridtjof Nansen (F-310) at IZAR's shipyard in Ferrol, Spain. This signifies the beginning of Integrated Weapon System (IWS) testing for the first of Norway's five new Aegis-equipped frigates.

"Successful completion of this important milestone for the Norwegian Navy is a tribute to the adaptability, scalability and flexibility of the multi- mission Aegis Weapon System," said Orlando Carvalho, vice president of Surface Systems at Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors. "We have now installed Aegis on five ship classes for four different Navy customers around the world, all delivered on-schedule and on-budget."

The SPY-1F is a modified version of the AN/SPY-1D radar system designed to provide highly robust performance with Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile and Standard Missile-2 capability. Lockheed Martin is responsible for system integration of all IWS elements -- including sensors, communications and weapons -- for the Fridtjof Nansen class frigates.

"All the technical milestones are being achieved and we are fully confident that the frigates will exceed all expectations," said Angel Recaman, director of IZAR's Ferrol shipyard.

The Aegis Weapon System includes the SPY-1 radar, the world's most advanced computer-controlled radar system. When paired with the MK 41 Vertical Launching System, it is capable of delivering missiles for every mission and threat environment in naval warfare. The Aegis Weapon System is currently deployed on more than 75 ships around the world, with 30 more ships planned. In addition to the U.S. and Norway, Aegis is the weapon system of choice for Japan, Korea and Spain. Recently, Australia selected the Aegis Weapon System for its Air Warfare Destroyer program.

Headquartered in Bethesda, MD, Lockheed Martin employs about 130,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems, products and services.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
