Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has secured a $213.9 million follow-on contract with the U.S. Navy to perform life cycle engineering services for San Antonio-class amphibious transport docks.
HII said Friday its Ingalls Shipbuilding division in Pascagoula, Mississippi, will help the military branch manage engineering changes, integrate systems. provide shipboard technology training and implement industrial post-delivery availability efforts for the LPD 17 program.
Services under the base period of performance are valued at $36.9 million and will run through June 2022.
The company will extend its work until December 2025 if the Navy exercises all options, the Department of Defense said Friday.
DOD noted Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate $20.9 million on this award using the branch’s shipbuilding and conversion funds.
The San Antonio class provides the Navy with vessels designed to carry air-cushioned landing craft and accommodate up to 800 personnel for expeditionary warfare, amphibious assault or special operations.
