DynCorp Wins $35M For USNS Subcontract

Wednesday, January 15, 2003
DynCorp has received a five-year, $35 million subcontract to provide operational support to the United States Naval Ship (USNS) Hayes and USNS Waters, Naval Special Mission ships that support test and range operations in Florida. The USNS Hayes, one of the acoustically quietest surface ships in the world, operates from Port Canaveral, Fla., and supports the U.S. Navy's underwater sound range at the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC). Because of its special design, the Hayes is the only ship in the U.S. Navy capable of performing the full-spectrum of active and passive ship acoustic signature measurements required for new and recently overhauled Naval surface ships and submarines.

The USNS Waters provides instrumentation support for Trident missile test launches near Cape Canaveral, Fla. and is the largest ship DynCorp currently supports. At 442 feet in length, the USNS Waters stretches from home plate to well past the centerfield wall in most Major League Baseball stadiums. "Supporting a ship the size of the USNS Waters demonstrates DynCorp can provide large ships with the same level of high-quality service we provide to the Military Sealift Command's fleet of smaller oceanographic ships," said David Payne, president of Dyn Marine & Logistics Services, the DynCorp unit that will perform the work.

DynCorp's subcontract is part of a $56 million US Navy contract awarded to Reston, Va.-based 3PSC LLC. Under the contract, 3PSC will provide program management, engineering and ship's crew. DynCorp will provide shore and logistics support and business infrastructure needed to support the contract.
