AAI Corp. to assist Navy with unmanned minesweep system

AAI Corp. has won a potentially $118.1 million contract to support the Navy’s Unmanned Influence Sweep System (UISS).

The base value of this cost-plus-incentive-fee contract is $33.9 million.

Targeting acoustic, magnetic and magnetic/combination mine types, the UISS allows for littoral combat ships to perform their mine warfare sweep missions, satisfying the Navy’s need for a mine clearance capability, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed in Hunt Valley, Md., Slidell, La., Hauppague, N.Y., Columbia, Md., and Lemont Furnace, Penn., and is expected to be completed by March 2017.

Five companies bid on this contract.
