True Heading Announces Expanded Contract With Lockheed Martin

Leading AIS Manufacturer Selected to be Part of Special Project for U.S. Navy

True Heading, a leading manufacturer of Automatic Identification System (AIS) and telematics solutions, announced today that after an initial order in 2014, the company will fulfill an expanded order from the world’s largest defense contractor, Lockheed Martin.

Building on a longstanding partnership, True Heading has been selected by Lockheed to supply the AIS RX PRO special receiver. Lockheed will use the receiver as part of its contract with the United States Navy to implement the BLQ-10 system. An electronic warfare support system for U.S. submarines, the BLQ-10 system provides automated intercept capability including: detection, classification, localization and identification of both radar and communications signals.

The AIS RX PRO is designed specifically with AIS receiving capacity only. For navies, it is the best way to have the most secure means to see all AIS traffic transmitted within the available coverage area and can even intercept addressed messages between other AIS stations such as ships, aircraft and ground stations.

“We are honored to be able to continue to offer our AIS receivers to such a distinguished client,” says Anders Bergström, CEO, True Heading. “True Heading constantly strives to produce the highest quality products with the most features at a cost effective and competitive price. To have a repeat order of this magnitude is a testament to our innovation and reliability.”

With over 40 years of experience in AIS development, True Heading offers a full range of solutions from aids to navigation to Class A and B transponders and its Seapilot recreational navigation app. For more information on True Heading’s entire product line of commercial AIS and navigation solutions, please visit
