Northrop Grumman is being awarded a $30 million services contract with provisions for field and marine repair services for the US Navy.
This contract includes software updates and support; engineering support for the AN/WSN-7 Inertial Navigation System, the AN/WSN-7A Ring Laser Gyro Navigation Systems, and the AN/WSN-7B Ring Laser Gyrocompass; and the repair of ancillary commercial equipment for the Navy, the US department of defense said in a statement Friday.
These systems provide full ship navigation capability as well as interface digital data such as position, velocity, velocity rates, and time information to other vital ship systems. Major fleet-wide software, firmware, or hardware changes will be required (due to parts obsolescence, new mission requirements, new interfaced sensor or user requirements) to all of these systems.
The contract includes a five-year ordering period. A task order for the Attack Submarine, Nuclear (SSN)-795 in the amount of $521,000; and a task order for the Aircraft Carrier, Nuclear (CVN)-79 in the amount of $471,404 will be placed on contract and obligated at the time of award.
Work is expected to be complete by January 2024.
