Ultra continues work on NGSSR

15th July 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems has received a $42.19 million contract modification from the Naval Surface Warfare Center for production of Next Generation Surface Search Radar (NGSSR) systems.

Work will be completed by April 2023, primarily at locations in Wake Forest, North Carolina (85%) and Chantilly, Virginia (14%).

It will result in the USN acquiring the first NGSSR production lot, following a contract award for design and production of three qualification systems.

Ultra was awarded the original contract in April 2019.

According to the DoD, the primary objective of NGSSR is to replace all variants of in-service AN/SPS-67, AN/SPS-73, BridgeMaster E series and COTS systems, ‘due to current military threats and obsolescence issues’.
