Teledyne Brown Engineering has been awarded a $6,178,103 cost plus incentive fee contract by the US Navy to design, engineer, build, test, and deliver ocean littoral battlespace sensing-gliders (LBS-G).
The programme is part of the littoral battlespace sensing, fusion and integration (LBSF&I) programme.
The LBS-G will provide a low-observable, highly persistent ability to characterise ocean volume properties that influence sound propagation and acoustic weapon and sensor performance predictions within an area of interest.
This contract includes firm fixed-priced, cost plus fixed fee options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to an estimated $52,576,722.
This contract was competitively procured, with four offers received via the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command e-Commerce Central website.
