BriarTek Inc. has won a $8 million contract to provide the Navy with the Man Overboard Indicator Ship Installation Support System and related ogistics and training services.
The objective of the MOBI program is to outfit each ship with a system capable of alerting the crew to a man overboard event so that lifesaving rescue can be launched, the Defense Department said.
Work will be performed at various ship homeports, and is expected to be completed by January 2019.
Funding in the amount of $18,000 is obligated at the time of the award, and will not expire at the end of fiscal 2014.
