The project is set to include the development, upgrade, validation and delivery of CSOSS for all shipboard sensors, as well as command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) and weapon systems.

ESN chief executive officer and US Navy military veteran Raymond F. Lopez said: “We have been a steadfast partner with NSWC PHD Code A34, with a track record of implementing cost-effective efficiencies through innovation and LEAN methodologies.”

Work on the project will be carried out in Norfolk, Virginia, as well as San Diego and Port Hueneme in California, US.

The new five-year contract is slated to commence immediately and includes one base year and four additional one-year options.

Furthermore, ESN will be responsible for delivering analyses, technical and programmatic support, and maintenance of CSOSS for the Aegis and non-Aegis ship classes, the US Coast Guard WMSL and WPC cutters, in addition to associated shore facilities.

The company will also provide support for the development and integration of the training operational sequencing system (TOSS) and combat system interface diagram (CSID), as well as crew orientation training.
