HII Secures $187M Navy Contract to Engineer Additional Amphibious Assault Ship

Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has been awarded a potential $187.5M contract by the U.S. Navy  for design and engineering of one America-class amphibious warfare vessel.

The company will also use the funds to obtain long-lead time materials needed to build the service branch’s  fourth America-class Amphibious Assault Ship Replacement and second LHA(R) Flight 1 vessel, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

The new ship class is intended to replace five decommissioned Tarawa-class LHAs, according to the Navy.  The Flight 1 version will have the primary aviation characteristics of the predecessor configuration and will feature a well deck that is designed to support expeditionary warfighting missions

DoD noted the service will obligate the full contract amount from its fiscal 2019 shipbuilding and conversion funds and that the department expects work to conclude by February 2024.
