When in August&nbsp,1957, the US Navy needed an advance ASW/maritime patrol aircraft, the urgency was highlighted by the fact that they were prepared to accept a development of an off-the-shelf civil airplane to meet the requirement. Lockheed proposed a developed version of the L-188 Electra, gaining an initial research and development contract on May 8, 1958.
