PAE Applied Technologies has been awarded a $52.3 million contract modification to reinstate six-month periods of performance to support the operation of the US Navy’s Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC).

AUTEC is based in the Bahamas and is the navy's large area, deep water, undersea test and evaluation range, at which research, test and evaluation of anti-submarine weapons, sonar tracking and communications are carried out.

PAE delivers the services required for AUTEC to operate, as well as carrying out maintenance of facilities and range systems. 

It is also responsible for operating a self-sufficient one square mile navy outpost. 

The cumulative value of the contract is now $853 million, and work under the new modification will be carried out on Andros Island in the Bahamas and West Palm Beach in Florida, and is expected to be complete by March 2020. 

The Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport Division based in Newport, Rhode Island, is the contracting activity for the award.
