Austal USA gains additional Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) work contract.

The United States Department of Defense has announced that Austal USA has been awarded a US$19.987-million modification to a previously awarded Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) contract. The modification exercises options for class service efforts and special studies, analyses and reviews for the LCS program.

Austal USA will assess engineering and production challenges, and evaluate the cost and schedule risks, from affordability efforts to reduce LCS acquisition and lifecycle costs. Work is expected to be completed by March 2014.

“This award is important as it aligns with Austal’s strategy of expanding the level of support services we provide, in particular for the US Navy’s LCS and Joint High Speed Vessel platforms for which we are prime contractor,” said Andrew Bellamy, Austal’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting authority.
