Engility to support Air Cushion Vehicles
Engility has received a five-year, $29 million, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to support the US Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) and the navy's Air Cushion Vehicles (ACVs), it announced on 12 July.
Under the contract, Engility will provide a wide range of engineering services for ACVs - the landing aircraft the navy uses to move materiel and personnel from ship to shore and across the beach. The contract also includes legacy work on the Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC)-1 class and broadens work into the new Ship-to-Shore Connector LCAC-100 class.
Engility’s Expeditionary Solutions team will provide Expeditionary Warfare Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Navigation, and Electrical (C4N&E) services, including the entire model-based engineering lifecycle ranging from requirements development to engineering design, development and fleet support.
Lynn Dugle, CEO, Engility, said: 'This win allows Engility to expand our model-based engineering portfolio to include the next generation of navy hovercraft, which provide vital transportation for weapons systems, personnel, cargo and equipment from ship to shore.'
