Westinghouse Gets $ 6 9 . 8 M For SEAL Delivery System

Westinghouse Electric Corp. received a $69.8 million contract from the U.S. Naval Sea Systems command (NAVSEA) to design and build the Advanced SEAL Delivery System (ASDS), a dry combat submersible system providing greater range, speed and physiological comfort for carrying the Navy's Sea-Air-Land (SEAL) special operation forces on mission in high-threat environments. Westinghouse and its team will perform detailed design and construction of the prototype system, which includes the crewed submersible vehicle, transportation and equipment handling, test and evaluation, support equipment, training, operational site and depot support, host interface equipment and documentation. The new dry submersible will transport SEAL personnel to selected landing areas. Current delivery vehicles are free-flooded carriers which expose personnel to ocean pressures and temperatures. Under terms of the contract, a prototype is to be delivered in 34 months. It also includes an option for two additional systems, for a total contract potential value of $133.8 million.
