US Navy holds Lockheed Martin responsible for LCS Freedom gear repairs

by Michael Fabey

The US Navy (USN) is holding ship prime contractor Lockheed Martin responsible for repairs after determining that a propulsion system combining gear-material defect on the Freedom-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) was a latent defect-design issue, the USN said in a statement on 21 January.

“Lockheed Martin, the prime contractor for the Freedom-variant LCS, will be responsible for the repairs,” the USN said. “The cost will be shared between the government and Lockheed Martin along the provisions of the contract. Lockheed Martin will be contractually responsible to resolve the defect on all ships.”
