"To support NATO's security mission quickly, the U.S. Navy needed long-range detection and identification capabilities to identify ships and small water craft," said Paul Lemmo, vice president of Fire Control/SOF CLSS at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Because of its proven performance in theater, durability and universal mount design, VOSS I was the ideal solution to delivering the U.S. Navy a quick reaction capability."
VOSS I is designed with solid, weather-tight construction and universal mounts that allow it to easily move from a ground vehicle to a maritime vessel. Combat-proven in extreme environments, more than 1,100 VOSS systems have been deployed with the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, NATO and law enforcement agencies across multiple platforms.
