Serco Awarded US Navy Production & Engineering Contract

Press Release
Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Serco Inc wins production & engineering services contract in support of United States Navy's Automated Digital Network Systems (ADNS).

The five year contract exercises a one-year base period and four one-year option periods, with a total value of $68 million, if all options are exercised. 

Under the contract, Serco will perform hardware integration and testing to deliver the Navy's newest ADNS configuration in support of Shore, Ship and Submarine installations. 

Deployment of the system first began in 1997 to combine Internet Protocol (IP) traffic from different sources across a single radio path. This newest deployment will provide enhancements to enable ADNS to serve as the tactical Wide Area Network for Navy Ships in support of the Navy's Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services program, which is being implemented to modernize the Navy's shipboard Local Area Networks.  Serco will expand into a larger production facility in San Diego, California to support this new work.

"We are proud to deliver solutions to support our Sailor's missions," said Kent Brown, Vice President of Serco's Engineering unit.  "We look forward to providing the engineering and integration services needed to support our Navy Warfighters."
