Lockheed Martin has received a $166 million contract for a U.S. Special Operations Command dry submersible system.

The contract will cover the design, development, construction, testing, production and sustainment of the system.

The contract aims to fill a capability gap for surface-launched dry submersibles, which will be used in harsh maritime environments by leveraging commercial submersible technologies and international classing safety certification.

Work will be performed in Florida and the United Kingdom, with a performance period of 66 months.

Special Operations Command is the contracting activity.

Lockheed has in the past mostly focused on unmanned underwater systems, but designed a dry submersible prototype for the Navy SEALS, a 2012 company statement said.
