Draper Awarded $110M Navy Hypersonic Missile Guidance Research Support Extension

Charles Stark Draper Laboratory has received a $109.5M contract modification to support the U.S. Navy’s research into hypersonic guidance technologies for the common missile compartment of U.S. Columbia-class and U.K. Dreadnought-class submarines.

The Defense Department said Friday Draper will also provide technical and engineering services for a guidance, navigation and control system for use in hypersonic flight experiments.

The full obligated amount will come from the fiscal 2019 Navy weapons procurement and operations and maintenance funds along with U.K. government funds.

Draper was originally awarded a $13.4M cost-plus-fixed-fee contract in October.

The nonprofit company will perform work in Cambridge, Mass., and El Segundo, Calif., through Sept. 30 of next year.
