Huntington Ingalls Inc. was awarded a $13,5 million modification to previously awarded contract for DDG 51 Class Flight III upgrade design services.
The main goal of the Flight III upgrade is to replace the SPY-1D(V) radar with the Air and Missile Defense Radar.
This modification to the existing DDG 51 Class Lead Yard Services contract will allow for DDG 51 Class Flight III upgrade design efforts, along with procurement of Design Vendor Furnished Information in support of the Flight III design.
Work will be mostly performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and is expected to be completed by February 2016.
The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
