Washington-based engineering company Gryphon Technologies has won a U.S. Navy contract to provide engineering development and support for the Navy’s new E-Stream and existing Underway Replenishment Systems.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division is a field activity of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) supporting the timely meeting of key program milestones for the TAO-X program, the next generation fleet oiler, while managing the lifecycle of the UNREP systems.
The first new UNREP (E-Stream) system in forty years will be developed, tested, and deployed through the work performed under this contract. Gryphon will support the current UNREP program while providing design, prototyping, testing, documentation, software development and sustainment of the new E-Stream program. If all options are exercised, the contract will be completed in June 2022.
“It is a privilege to be selected to provide engineering and technical support to the Navy’s Underway Replenishment Program,” said P.J. Braden, founder of Gryphon Technologies. “Gryphon’s team of professionals is committed to do everything we can to ensure the success of this program which is crucial to the mission of the U.S. Navy.”
