Navy Releases Multiyear Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyer Procurement RFP

The U.S. Navy has issued the final request for proposals for multiyear contracts to procure Flight III Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers (DDG-51).

The service branch said Thursday the multiyear procurement contracts will run from fiscal year 2018 through FY 2022 and will be limited for competition between Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) and General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) Bath Iron Works subsidiary.

The ships to be delivered through the MYP authority included in the president’s proposed budget for FY 2018 will integrate the AN/SPY6(V)1 radar in support of the military branch’s integrated air and missile defense requirement.

The service plans to award the contracts by the end of FY 2018 under the DDG 51 shipbuilding program that has produced and delivered 65 vessels to the Navy.
