Mission Statement

PEO Littoral Combat Ships provides a single program executive responsible for acquiring and maintaining the littoral mission capabilities of the littoral combat ship (LCS) class from end to end, beginning with procurement, and ending with fleet employment and sustainment. These include programs in support of Mine Warfare, Littoral Combat Ship Mission Modules, Unmanned Maritime Systems, Littoral Combat Ship, and Fleet Introduction, Test & Evaluation, In-Service Support.

Originally established in 1992 as the Program Executive Officer, Mine Warfare (PEO MIW), the PEO subsequently assumed increased responsibility for Undersea and Littoral Warfare programs and was redesignated as PEO Littoral and Mine Warfare (PEO LMW) in 2002. LMW comprised eight program offices. In addition to the LCS mission modules program, the portfolio included programs in support of mine warfare, maritime systems, and expeditionary systems. These offices were responsible for the development, delivery and maintenance of over 200 programs supporting our overseas contingency operations and the transformation of military capabilities for tomorrow.

During a subsequent reorganization on July 11, 2011, the Navy disestablished PEO LMW and established the Program Executive Office, Littoral Combat Ships (PEO LCS).

PEO LCS has six program offices with approximately 200 civilians and military personnel supplemented by Field Activities and other personnel responsible for development, acquisition, and life-cycle support of these programs.
