General Dynamics Bath Iron Works Wins Second Flight III Destroyer Modification Contract
DDG 126 guided-missile destroyer

General Dynamics Bath Iron Works is being awarded modification contract for incorporation of the Flight III baseline on DDG 126 and award of one fiscal 2016 ship (DDG 127) in the Flight IIA configuration.

Flight III will incorporate the SPY-6 Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) and upgrade the electrical power and cooling capacity plus additional associated changes. The fiscal 2016 ship was appropriated by Congress in the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

As the Navy expects to release a competitive solicitation for additional DDG 51 class ships in the Flight III configuration in future years, the contract award amount is considered source selection sensitive information and will not be made public at this time.

Work for DDG 126 and 127 is scheduled to complete in fiscal 2024.
