BAE Systems has received a $103.5 million contract from the U.S. Navy for the maintenance and modernization of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88).

Under the depot maintenance period (DMP) availability contract awarded, BAE Systems will dry-dock the ship, perform underwater hull preservation work, upgrade the ship’s Aegis combat system and its command and control equipment, and refurbish the living spaces for the ship’s 280 crew members. The work is expected to begin in October 2020 and be completed in February 2022.

BAE Systems’ San Diego shipyard is completing similar work aboard the guided missile destroyer USS Shoup (DDG 86).

USS Preble is the 38th ship in the Arleigh Burke class and was commissioned in June 2002. The ship is named in honor of Commodore Edward Preble, an early 19th century U.S. Navy hero. Five previous U.S. naval combatants were named after the commodore.

 The value of the competitively awarded contract could reach $117.7 million if all options are exercised.
