General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) NASSCO subsidiary has won a potential $96.3 million contract to sustain Littoral Combat Ships that are visiting or stationed at a naval base in San Diego.
The contract has a $24.2 million initial amount and will reach its full potential value if all options are exercised, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
NASSCO will provide sustainment, facility maintenance, engineering and fly-away support services for both the Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Austal USA variants of the LCS.
The U.S. Navy received two proposals for the contract and is obligating $6, 138, 041 at the time of award from fiscal 2015 operations and maintenance funds.
DoD expects NASSCO to complete work by April 2016.
