BAE, Lockheed win U.S.-U.K. navy engineering contracts

Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems have each won sole-source contracts with the U.S. Navy to provide engineering support services to the U.S. and British navies.

The Lockheed contract is worth $114.2 million if all options are exercised and covers fleet support, training system support, refueling overhauls for the Ohio-class submarine, support for a strategic weapon training system and training system development.

The BAE contract is worth $171.4 million with all options and covers a variety of engineering services including support for nuclear weapons. The work includes logistics, testing, evaluation, configuration management and documentation.

The company also will support the Common Missile Compartment program and assure that as the concept is developed it will be compatible with the Trident II submarine in areas such as weapon systems coordination, class engineering, configuration management, logistics engineering, network development and maintenance and facility engineering and design support.

Both contracts were approved as sole-source under the Strategic Systems Programs.
