CEC Combined Fleet Defense Program: FY 2006
Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) is the true “secret weapon” of AEGIS fleet defense. On the one hand, this JHU/APL brainchild consists only of a data distribution system, including antenna, and the cooperative engagement processor. Yet those simple components add up to something incredibly powerful, by bringing radar, sensor and tracking data from a number of widely separated platforms together in one big picture. The resulting sensor fusion significantly improves weapons tracking consistency and continuity; expands detection ranges, thus increasing reaction time; and enables entirely new engagement strategies against threats. Indeed, CEC has applications that reach beyond the sea to ground-based systems, blimps, and even successful ballistic missile defense.
FY 2006: Contracts
Unless noted otherwise, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) in Washington, DC issued these contracts, and Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems in St. Petersburg, FL is the contractor, and that is also where work takes place unless otherwise specified.
Feb 28/07: A $31.9 million firm-fixed-price modification under previously awarded contract (N00024-06-C-5102) for FY 2006 add-on requirements and FY 2007 option requirements for the Navy’s Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) program. Work will be performed in Largo, FL (52%); St. Petersburg, FL (23%); Dallas, TX (15%) and McKinney, TX (10%) and is expected to be complete in March 2009.
The FY 2006 add-on requirement is for 5 each: Red Media Converters, Black Media Converters, Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Cesium Standards, Battery Packs, Monitor and Keyboards, KVM Switches and Install Kits; 10 Base Computers; four Installation and Checkout (Replenishment) Kit Lists (INCOs); and one On-Board Repair Parts (OBRP).
The FY 2007 option exercise is for 8 each: Antenna Environmental Control Units (AECU), Rack Assemblies, Red Media Converters, Black Media Converters, Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Cesium Standards, Battery Packs, Monitor and Keyboards, KVM Switches and Install Kits; six CEP Input/Output Converters (CIOC); 16 Base Computers; nine Planar Array Antenna Assemblies (PAAA); one OBRP; one INCO and integration and final acceptance testing of the AN/USG-2(A) System.
April 13/06: A $19 million cost-plus-fixed-fee modification to a previous contract (N00024-06-C-5101) exercises an option for cooperative engagement capability (CEC) design agent support. Work is expected to be complete March 2008.
March 20/06: A $10.9 million cost-plus-fixed-fee modification under a previously awarded contract (N00024-06-C-5101). This exercises an option for Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) design agent support.
Feb 9/06: A $10.7 million firm-fixed-price modification under a previously awarded contract (N00024-06-C-5102), exercising an option for the FY 2006 requirements of the US Navy’s CEC program. The option is for three antenna environmental control units; the CEP input/ output converter and planar array antenna assembly which comprises the AN/USG-2(A) CEC terminal will be government-provided.
Work on this contract will be performed in Largo, FL (55%); St. Petersburg, FL (31%); Dallas, TX (9%); McKinney, TX (4%); and El Segundo, CA (1%), and is expected to be completed by October 2007.
Dec 8/05: A $7.2 million firm-fixed-price contract for FY 2006 item requirements for the Navy’s Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) program. Requirements are for two Antenna Environmental Control Units; Input/Output Converter and Planar Array Antenna Assembly, which comprise the AN/USG-2(A); three Installation and Checkout kits and four Planar Array Antenna Assemblies.
Work will be performed in Largo, FL (55%); St. Petersburg, FL (31%); Dallas, TX (9%); McKinney, TX (4%); and El Segundo, CA (1%), and is expected to be completed by August 2007. This contract was not competitively procured (N00024-06-C-5102).
