Austal USA Lands $584M Navy Contract for Littoral Combat Ship Construction

Austal’s U.S. arm has received a potential five-year, $584.2 million contract to build a Littoral Combat Ship for the U.S. Navy.

The fixed-price-incentive contract covers LCS class services and integrated data environment assistance and includes options for post-delivery availability support and construction of additional LCS vessels, the Defense Department said Friday.

Austal USA will perform work in Alabama, Massachusetts, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, Vermont, New York and other locations through December 2022.
