Draper Lands Potential $392M Navy Contract for Trident II Missile Guidance Tech Production

Charles Stark Draper Laboratory has received a potential $391.8M fixed-price-incentive-fee contract to produce submarine-launched missile guidance systems for U.S. and U.K. navies.

The nonprofit organization will manufacture MK6 guidance equivalent unit designed for the Trident II D5 Strategic Weapon System, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Work is initially scheduled to conclude by July 31, 2022, and would continue through July 31, 2023, if the contract option is exercised.

The U.S. Navy will obligate $189.5M in fiscal 2019 weapons procurement funds and the British government will provide $1.5M on this award.

The Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs awarded the contract after a sole-source solicitation via the FedBizOpps website.

Draper, the Trident guidance system’s prime contractor, developed a replacement system composed of electronic assemblies and modules, inertial measurement units and mission-critical flight and shipboard-test software for integration into submarines.
