$7.6M to Improve Ticonderoga Class Ship Controls
L-3 Henschel in Newburyport, MA is being awarded a $7.6 million firm-fixed-price contract for Data Acquisition Unit shipsets, training, and testing site sets together with engineering services and provisioned items. Work will be performed in Newburyport, MA and is expected to be complete by October 2006. The contract was competitively procured and advertised on the Internet, with one offer received by the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC (N00024-06-C-4200).
This contract is in support of the CG-47 Ticonderoga Class Cruiser Integrated Ship Controls (ISC) Program. The ISC Program integrates all ship control functions by utilizing commercially available technology. Installation involves removing old analog consoles and replacing them with modern digital workstations. The new workstations generally take up less space, are more trouble free, and are easier to use. Ain’t Moore’s Law grand?
