Lockheed Martin recently delivered the 8,000th AN/UYQ-70 combat console suite to the U.S. Navy, marking a key milestone for a system that is currently installed on 90 percent of the Navy's commissioned ships.

The milestone Q-70 system will be installed on the USS Minnesota (SSN 783) Virginia-class submarine to upgrade combat control and navigation systems. It is a command workstation that permits operators to display combat control and navigation decision data onto high definition displays located in the command and control center, providing real-time situational analysis.

"Through 8,000 Q-70 deliveries, we have provided a highly standardized computer infrastructure that has reduced unit cost to the Navy by 70 percent since the inception of the program," said Mike Feeley, vice president of C4I programs for Lockheed Martin's Undersea Systems business.

Q-70 products support numerous operational requirements for sailors. The Q-70 servers, workstations and network systems are widely used on Navy platforms in the air and on land, and in naval systems operated by Australia, Germany, Japan, Norway and Spain.
