Kevin Carpentier: SCRA to Help Navy Run Shipbuilding Tech Center of Excellence

DRAFT Huntington IngallsAn SCRA division has been awarded a five-year, $99 million recompete contract to help the U.S. Navy manage a facility designed to explore technology for naval ship construction.

SCRA Applied R&D will provide operational and technical oversight services at the branch’s Shipbuilding and Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence in South Carolina, SCRA said Tuesday.

Kevin Carpentier, SCRA vice president, will direct the Navy-backed COE.

“We will support the Navy and its warfighters by teaming with the industry’s best technology providers to reduce acquisition and life-cycle costs, improve capabilities and deliver exceptional value to the Navy, ” Carpentier said.

SCRA says the S.C. center’s scope of work has been expanded to include other Navy platforms such as the CH-53K heavy-lift helicopter and the F-35 fighter jet.

The branch funds seven COEs across the U.S. through its ManTech program, and two of the facilities are managed by SCRA.
