Six companies have won positions on a potential 10-year, $2.4 billion contract to install so-called “C4ISR” systems on Navy platforms around the world.
The Navy received one other bid for the contract that has an initial five-year base period followed by up to five individual option years, the Defense Department said in its Wednesday awards digest.
Winners will compete for task orders to help put in place systems and other equipment used on surface platforms for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance functions.
- General Dynamics’ IT services segment
- Huntington Ingalls Industries
- M.C. Dean
- Prism Maritime (small business)
- Serco’s Americas region subsidiary
- VT Group’s Milcom subsidiary
The Navy conducted a full-and-open process for this recompeted contract, for which four incumbents retained the work.
Deltek data indicates GDIT and Prism Maritime are newcomers to this iteration, while other incumbents Leidos and KBR were not selected for the new version.
Leidos inherited its position on the incumbent contract through the merger three years ago with Lockheed Martin’s IT services business, while KBR became part of the program after its acquisition also three years ago of the former Honeywell technology solutions division.
Services will also include decommissioning, modernization, project and program management, engineering design, industrial work, trouble shooting, operational verification and end-user training.
