Austal USA is being awarded a Congressional cost cap of $584,200,000 contract for the construction of a littoral combat ship (LCS).

The contract also includes options for the construction of additional LCS, class services, and post-delivery availability support, a US DOD release said.

The Navy expects to release a competitive solicitation(s) for additional LCS class ships in future years, and therefore the specific contract award amount for these ships is considered source selection sensitive information and will not be made public at this time.

Work is expected to be completed by December 2022.

Austal USA is the US entity of Australia based ship-builder, Austal. Previous LCS Ships have been built by Lockheed Martin.
