Department of Defense, informs that Oceaneering International, Inc., Hanover, Maryland, is being awarded $8,941,224 for cost-plus-fixed-fee task order 0004 under a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (N00014-11-D-0327) for the Advanced Mooring System (AMS) Phase III Development.

The Office of Naval Research is interested in a technology designed to develop skin-to-skin mooring capabilities for the Navy because there is a need to quickly and safely moor lightweight hull connectors and high-flare container ships to the mobile landing platform in high sea states. No system exists to do this.

The AMS will improve the vehicle personnel and container transfer during skin-to-skin mooring within the sea base through Sea State 3 (threshold) and Sea State 4 (objective).

Task order 0004 will provide a Six Mooring Module Demonstrator System that will go through factory acceptance testing. Work will be performed in Hanover, Maryland, and is expected to be completed September 2015. Fiscal 2013 and 2014 research, development, test and evaluation funds in the amount of $7,409,224 will be obligated at the time of award, of which $1,606,628 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity.
