More for Shallow Water Combat Submersibles for US Navy
Teledyne Technologies’ subsidiary, Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE), will continue to produce MK11 Shallow Water Combat Submersible (SWCS) systems for US Naval Sea Systems Command.
The company has been awarded a $178 million contract for follow-on production of the systems, along with spare parts production and the provision of engineering and technical support services, through 2024, if all options are exercised.
The SWCS is a manned combat submersible vehicle specifically designed to insert and extract Special Operations Forces in high threat areas.
TBE designed, manufactured, tested and delivered the initial Engineering Development Model SWCS system under an initial contract with the US Special Operations Command.
Al Pichelli, president and CEO of Teledyne, said: ‘Teledyne is proud to be supplying advanced technologies and systems enabling our Special Operations Forces to perform their missions successfully. The SWCS is a complex system that will assist in the safe delivery and return of those who are protecting our nation.’
