DoD added the company will design, develop, document, integrate, test and evaluate systems and associated equipment.
Contract work will occur in El Segundo, Calif., and is expected to conclude in February 2024.
The Navy will obligate $1.4M in fiscal 2019 research, development, test and evaluation funds at the time of award.
