Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced today that its AMSEC LLC subsidiary has been awarded two contracts in support of the United States Navy.

Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C., awarded a contract to AMSEC for technical and logistical support services, as well as material kitting services, for U.S. Navy LCC 19-class Amphibious Command ships. Material kitting services involve the pre-packaging of materials required to complete a specific task. Amphibious Command ships provide command and control for fleet commanders.

A total of three indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts were awarded for these services with a combined maximum dollar amount of $96.8 million. AMSEC LLC was also awarded the initial delivery order valued at $1.2 million.

"AMSEC continues to respond to our customer's needs and enhance our services to meet the Navy's requirements," said Harris Leonard, vice president of HII's Newport News Shipbuilding division and president of AMSEC operations. "We will build on our record of superior service to the Naval Sea Systems Command and the naval fleet they support."

AMSEC will support modernization requirements for USS Blue Ridge (LCC 19) and USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20). AMSEC will also provide advanced planning efforts associated with shipchecks, drawings and engineering, as well as marine maintenance and installation.

The work is anticipated to be performed in Virginia Beach, Va., Yokosuka, Japan, Puget Sound, Wash., and Gaeta, Italy. The work is expected to be completed by July 2019.

AMSEC was also awarded a contract by Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport (NUWC), Newport, R.I., to produce interactive multimedia instruction courseware modules for the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command's shipboard and schoolhouse training programs for all subject matter areas of submarine operations and procedures.

A total of four contract awards were issued for this indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), 60-month, firm-fixed-price contract with a combined maximum dollar amount that may be awarded of $8.9 million.

"We are eager to support the Navy with interactive multimedia training," said Mary White, AMSEC director of logistics, engineering, technology and training solutions operation. "Our sailors deserve our very best products to prepare them for going to sea and being successful on their missions."

The work is anticipated to be performed in Virginia Beach, Herndon, and Arlington, Va., Waterford, Mass. and Groton, Conn. The work is expected to be completed by July 2019.
