Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems is being awarded a contract modification to exercise an option for AEGIS CSEA (Combat System Engineering Agent) efforts for the design, development, integration, test, and delivery of computer program baselines and associated technology insertion hardware design support for the next/future advanced capability build.
The cost-plus-incentive-fee modification, worth around 102 million, was awarded by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) located in Washington, District of Columbia. Fiscal 2018 research, development, test and evaluation (Navy) funding in the amount of around $4.7 million will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
Under this contract, the AEGIS CSEA shall develop, integrate, test, and deliver computer program baseline advanced capability builds (ACBs) and support technology insertions (TIs) – a replacement and/or upgrade of combat system computing hardware and associated middleware/firmware – design development, develop engineering products to support ship integration, support developmental test/operational test (DT/OT) events, develop training and logistics products, and provide field technical support for designated AEGIS baselines.
The systems engineering, development, and integration work under this contract shall begin with ACB 16 and TI 16, and continue with a future ACB/TI through the period of performance of the contract. The specific option exercise in this modification provides for 2015 systems engineering, design, development, integration, test, and delivery of computer program baselines and associated technology insertion hardware design support for the next/future ACB.
The work will be performed in Moorestown, New Jersey (94 percent); Arlington, Virginia (5 percent); and Fairfax, Virginia (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by December 2018.
