The US Navy has awarded a contract to Engineering Services Network (ESN) to perform combat systems engineering and systems integration.

The $3.5m contract includes a follow-on task order by the US Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division (PHD) for casualty report (CASREP) and combat system maintenance coordinator east coast (CSMC East) services as well as a $2.6m order for combat system in-service engineering agent (CSISEA) support.

Under the contracts, ESN will provide combat systems engineering and systems integration services to maintain a high level of mission readiness with full operational combat system capabilities for aircraft carriers, amphibious units and strike groups.

ESN president and CEO Raymond Lopez said that the company's combat system engineers have active-duty navy experience and expertise on all facets of respective combat systems.

"They support the navy's government combat system engineering experts at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division, who, in turn, ensure fleet aircraft carriers, surface combatants and embarked units' combat systems are fully operational and mission ready," Lopez said.

"ESN will integrate products and processes across operational and maintenance programmes."

In order to support the type commander ship maintenance programme manager for each aircraft carrier, ESN will integrate products and processes across operational and maintenance programmes as part of the contract.

In addition, the company will provide CSISEA support including support to Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) PHD in-service engineers and US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) PEO IWS 10.

ESN will also develop and / or modify combat system interface diagrams as well as offer engineering and technical services to the passive counter-measures system project for aircraft carriers and other strike group ships, aircraft carrier and amphibious ships.

A team of 21 full-time and five part-time employees of Engineering Services Network will work under the contract in Port Hueneme, California, San Diego, Norfolk, Virginia, Washington, DC, and Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, US.
