Life Cycle Engineering and McKean Defense Group have been selected to help the U.S. Navy engineer shipboard navigational equipment under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth potentially $78.3M over five years.
The two companies will support technical work on electronic chart and situational awareness bridge displays for the branch’s Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
The U.S. Navy received four offers for IDIQ and will provide $250,000 to each contractor at the time of award. Thirty percent of contract work will occur at contractor facilities and the remaining 70 percent will take place at various locations in the U.S., Japan, Bahrain and Spain.
James Geurts, Assistant Secretary for Research, Development, and Acquisition with the U.S. Navy and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient will serve as a keynote speaker during the event. Geurts will discuss how the U.S. Navy has continually worked to decentralize, differentialize and digitize the service branch’s work as well as develop its talent in the field.
