US Navy plans major C4ISR upgrade

26th January 2011 - 18:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Four companies have been selected for work potentially worth $5 billion by the US Department of Defense (DoD) for the installation and operation of US naval C4ISR systems.

On 21 January the DoD announced that the companies will be responsible for the certification of C4ISR systems aboard naval platforms.

The contractors awarded were Serco, VT Milcom, Lockheed Martin, and Amsec (a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman), with each production contract being varied.

The work will be awarded by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Centres for PEO, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, and potentially by other governmental and foreign military sales customers.

Under the terms of the contracting umbrella, the four companies may have to compete for task orders.

The DoD said the systems will be delivered as ‘Government furnished equipment to this contract for installation onboard surface ships, submarines, and shore stations located worldwide’.

The agreements will reach their full potential of more than $5 billion if all options are exercised.

Work will be executed aboard US naval platforms, as well as other international locations, and all work is expected to be completed by January 2016.
