A Rhode Island-headquartered small business has won a five-year, $20 million contract to support submarine communications for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division in Newport.
Rite Solutions will provide engineering and technical services to support submarine communications networks, including the Submarine Local Area Network and the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services for all Navy submarines that fall under the warfare center in Newport.
Both SubLAN and CANES are enterprise submarine network systems that manage internal and external communications.
Specific services from Rite Solutions include systems engineering, in-lab integration and certification testing, onboard software installation, in-service engineering support, software and hardware configuration management, and system administration.
“This contract will have us working directly with NUWC and our Submarine Forces as we support NUWC in providing the best possible network systems and solutions,” says Laura Deady, senior vice president and director of engineering services at Rite-Solutions. “It also adds talented personnel to our growing team of subject matter experts in all facets of submarine warfare, especially in our ability to support NUWC for these leading-edge communication systems.”
The win is one of several Navy contracts the company has won in recent months.
