Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Maersk Line, Ltd, Norfolk, Va., is being awarded an $8,630,000 firm-fixed-price contract for a nine-month time charter of tanker MT Samho Moonstone, currently a foreign-flag vessel, which will be re-named and U.S.-flagged upon delivery to the government.  The ship's primary mission is to move petroleum for the Department of Defense between ports in the Far East.  This contract includes one 30-day option which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value to $9,500,000.  Work is expected to commence May 2010 and is expected to be completed within 270 calendar days or, if all options are exercised, within 300 calendar days.  The contract is expected to be funded in fiscal year 2010 and funds will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.  This contract was competitively procured, with 11 offers received.  Military Sealift Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting authority (N00033-10-C-5410).

Raytheon Co., Integrated Defense Systems, San Diego, is being awarded a $7,500,000 modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-08-C-5122) for the exercise of FY 10 options for performing as the platform system engineering agent for the Ship Self Defense System (SSDS).  In the course of this effort, Raytheon will be responsible for the integration of complex war-fighting improvement - including components associated with the dual-band radar and Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2 - into the modular SSDS.  SSDS is a combat system that intends to integrate and coordinate all of the existing sensors and weapons systems aboard a ship.  Raytheon will integrate, test, and provide certification support for the government-furnished equipment/information required for the CVN/amphibious ship combat system.  Work will be performed in San Diego (90 percent); Tewksbury, Mass. (2.5 percent); Portsmouth, R.I. (2.5 percent); St. Petersburg, Fla. (2.5 percent); and Tucson, Ariz. (2.5 percent).  Work is expected to be completed by September 2010.  Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.  The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
