Leidos to support SEAFAC programme
Leidos has received a $42 million contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) to support the Southeast Alaska Measurement Facility (SEAFAC) signature silencing programme, the company announced on 2 January.
The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five year period of performance.
Under the contract, Leidos will continue to provide logistics, maintenance, operations and programme management assistance services in support of navy and marine signature silencing programmes for naval ships and undersea systems.
Leidos supports the operations and maintenance of SEAFAC during and between acoustic trials, including the operation, maintenance, and repair of all SEAFAC assets and support systems and provides communications and emergency services.
NSWCCD supports a number of technical products over a wide range of scientific areas related to surface and undersea platforms including maritime science and technology.
Work under the contract will be performed in Ketchikan, Alaska, and Poulsbo, Washington.
Mike Chagnon, president of the Leidos Advanced Solutions Group, said: ‘We look forward to continuing to provide innovative logistics, maintenance and operations expertise to ensure SEAFAC is able to maintain a technical advantage in undersea systems.’
