The contract was awarded in support of the US Navy’s Future Surface Combatant Programs.

As agreed, Gibbs & Cox will offer services to support the designs of future surface combatants.

According to a company statement, the initial focus will be on the Program Executive Office Ship’s DDG(X) Program Office (PMS 460) industry engagement and DDG(X) design development, as well as integration of technologies.

Gibbs & Cox chief operating officer Ray Sheldon said: “As a key member of the original DDG 51 class design team, we are proud to continue our legacy of support to this cornerstone of the US Navy’s capability.”

If all options are exercised up to 2027, the contract may value around $318m.
