Under the contract, BAE Systems will undertake maintenance and modernization efforts on the ship.
The contract will complete the FY14 Dry-Docking Selected Restricted Availability (DSRA) on the USS Chung Hoon.
Work will be performed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and is expected to be completed by August 2014.
