Virginia Class Cutaway(click to view full: Large!) Trident Systems Inc. in Fairfax, VA received a $10.2 million modification to a previously awarded contract for Phase III engineering services in support of mobile computing on-board SSN-774 Virginia class submarines and other submarine/ surface ship systems, surveillance and air platforms. The contract modification is for engineering services in support of the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Topic: Mobile Computing for Submarine Application. The Phase III SBIR effort addresses systems and subsystems ranging from simple single processors to highly complex multi-processor network architecture. Work will include software development, procurement of COTS products and hardware/ software integration. Trident will perform work in Uniontown, PA (70%); Fairfax, VA (20%); and Raleigh, NC (10%) and expects to complete the work by May 2010. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC manages the contract (N00024-06-C-6265). The Virginia class of attack submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral missions. They are designed as a less expensive alternative to the Seawolf-class attack submarines, and are slated to replace the aging Los Angeles class submarines, of which 17/62 have already been decommissioned.
