Press Release
Sunday, January 06, 2013

Huntington Ingalls Industries' subsidiary AMSEC contracted to support submarine & surface ship new construction.

AMSEC LLC subsidiary has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The contract is in support of design, acquisition, production, integration, testing, installation and configuration management of certified C5ISR capabilities (command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), with a specific focus on submarine and surface ship new construction.

AMSEC was one of several contractors awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that contains a one-year base period with four one-year option periods which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative ceiling value for all awardees to approximately $900 million.

"This competitive award solidifies AMSEC's position as an industry leader in C5ISR services and enables AMSEC to provide support to SPAWAR's critical mission," said Harris Leonard, HII vice president and president of AMSEC operations. "We have an exceptional team ready to support the Navy and continue our record of innovation and superior performance."

The work will be performed worldwide and is expected to be completed by December 2017 if all options are exercised. The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic in Charleston, S.C., is the contracting activity.
