Additionally, CSC will continue to provide engineering and management support across all ship design, acquisition and life-cycle phases, and will remain actively engaged in advanced ship, vehicle and future fleet force development.

The CSC team, comprised of more than 55 specialty engineering subcontractors and consultants, includes CDI Marine, of Severna Park, Md.; Marine Systems Corporation, of Boston, Mass.; Reliability and Performance Technologies Inc., of Dublin, Pa.; and Zimmerman Associates Inc., of Fairfax, Va.
