Raytheon to Produce SURC for USMC

Wednesday, July 24, 2002
An industry team led by Raytheon's Naval & Maritime Integrated Systems (N&MIS) business unit has been awarded a competitively procured contract to produce Small Unit Riverine Craft (SURC) for the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). The Raytheon team will produce up to 100 SURCs, with a nominal contract value of $30 million and a potential contract value of up to $60 million. SURC will provide the USMC with a combat craft capable of transporting a 13-man infantry squad primarily in support of operations on inland waterways as well as in a variety of conditions on the open sea. Procured as a commercial item, the Marine Corps team used performance-based acquisition practices and an innovative strategy that reduced the procurement cycle time to less than six months. The Raytheon team includes Safe Boats International of Port Orchard, Wash., and Boat Master of Fort Myers, Fla. Safe Boats will design and manufacture the craft at its Port Orchard, Wash. facility using patented and state-of-the-art techniques. Boat Master will manufacture specially designed trailers that meet the multiple SURC requirements. SURC operations and maintenance will take place at Camp Lejeune. Under the contract, the Raytheon team will design, develop and manufacture the new craft and then provide worldwide logistics support for the SURCs. Raytheon will manage the program from its offices in Poulsbo, Wash., with additional operations with the USMC at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and in Norfolk, Va.
