U.S. Navy Ask BAE Systems to Modernize USS Mitscher (DDG 57) Warship

The U.S. Navy awarded BAE Systems $1.9 million for the maintenance and modernization of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mitscher (DDG 57).

The value of the competitively awarded contract could reach $101.2 million if all options are exercised.

Under the docking selected restricted availability (DSRA) contract awarded, BAE Systems will dry-dock the ship, perform underwater hull preservation work, support the Navy’s efforts to upgrade the ship’s Aegis combat system and its command and control equipment, and refurbish the living spaces for the ship’s 285 crewmembers. The work is expected to begin in March 2022 and to be completed in April 2023.

BAE Systems’ Norfolk shipyard is performing similar work aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Stout (DDG 55).

USS Mitscher was commissioned in December 1994.
