BAE Systems bags $34.8m for USS Cape St. George cruiser overhaul

The US Navy has awarded BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair a $34.78 contract for the overhaul of Ticonderoga-class cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71).

The San Diego-homeported cruiser will be undergoing what is known as a special selected restricted availability (SSRA). This includes depot-level maintenance, alterations, and modifications aimed at improving the performance of the 567-foot (172m) ship.

USS Cape St. George is the 25th ship in her class commissioned into the US Navy in June 1993.

According to a Defense News report on the decommissioning schedule of Ticonderoga cruisers, the US Navy aims to decommission USS Cape St. George in 2038, after 40 years of active service.
