A Leonardo DRS subsidiary has secured a potential seven-year, $830.7M contract from the U.S. Navy to design, produce and install workstations, processors and network systems for the service branch and the governments of the U.K. and Australia.
DRS Laurel Technologies will provide engineering and technical support as well as manufacture associated systems, enclosures and kits under the cost-plus-incentive-fee contract, the Department of Defense said Monday.
Work is initially scheduled to conclude by July 2025 and will take place in various locations across the U.S. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a base value of $382.5M and work could extend through December 2026 if all options are exercised.
The Naval Undersea Warfare Center received two bids for the competitively solicited contract and the service branch will obligate $296.8K in fiscal year 2019 other procurement funds at the time of award.
The Navy accounts for 92.7 percent of the orders, while the governments of the U.K. and Australia account for the remaining 7.3 percent.
