AN/SPS-48E radar onLPD-17 USS San Antonio ITT Industries Gilfillan Division in Van Nuys, CA received a not-to-exceed $9.8 million firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee letter contract for the upgrade and refurbishment of two AN/SPS-48E radar systems, plus engineering and maintenance support services, field change kits, technical manual updates, technical documentation, and associated data. Work will be performed in Van Nuys, CA and is expected to be complete by November 2009. The contract was not competitively procured. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C issued the contract (N00024-05-C-4304). The AN/SPS-48 is a medium-range, three-dimensional (height, range, and bearing) air search radar whose primary function is to provide target position data to a weapon system and a ship command and control system. It is installed on U.S. carriers, LHA and LHD “pocket carrier” amphibious assault ships, and LPD-17 San Antonio Class amphibious transport dock ships. The system provides for detection of targets as high as 100,000 feet and over a distance of 2 to 200 miles.
