Bae Systems Pens USS Russell Contract

Bae Systems San Diego Ship Repair Inc., located in San Diego Calif., has received a USD 49.7 million  modification to previously awarded contract to definitize the USS Russell’s (DDG 59) extended dry-docking selected restricted availability.

An extended dry-docking includes the planning and execution of depot-level maintenance, alterations, and modifications that will update and improve the ship’s military and technical capabilities.

This modification includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the deal to USD 50.2 million.

In late January 2013, the Russell swapped hulls with her sister ship Halsey (DDG 97) changing her homeport from Pearl Harbor, Hi., to San Diego, Calif.

USS Russell is the ninth arleigh burke class guided missile destroyer and the second ship in the US Navy to bear the name.

Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif., and is expected to be completed by February 2014.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
