Navy Picks Date to Award $690M SPAWAR Network Contract

The U.S. Navy‘s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command will award a $690 million contract for shipboard networks on Feb. 1, NextGov reports.

At a Jan. 25 conference in San Diego, where SPAWAR is based, Capt. D.J. LeGoff said either Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) or Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) will win the contract.

Lockheed and Northrop were previously contracted to create prototypes of the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Service network in 2010.

LeGoff, SPAWAR’s shipboard network program manager, said the awardee will have two years to equip 54 SPAWAR ships with the CANES network, according to NextGov.

LeGoff added that the Navy will award another contract in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 to install the network in more ships. The Navy will hold continuous competitions until the CANES network is installed on the entire SPAWAR fleet, according to NextGov.
