The US Navy’s SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) has contracted Serco to provide command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) installation services on-board the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, USS Harry S Truman.

The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier has completed an eight-month extended deployment fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and returned to its homeport at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, US, last week.

The contract is valued at $18.9m and has a performance period of ten months. It was issued as part of the $1.4bn indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) global installation contract.

"I am proud of the services our team delivers each and every day in support of the navy’s afloat and shore-based systems."

Under the contract, Serco will offer the support services of the consolidated afloat networks and enterprise services (CANES) system. The company will also provide satellite communications and supporting C4ISR system upgrades.

The CANES system integrates several shipboard networks into one consolidated network system.

Serco CEO and chairman Dan Allen said: “This was an important win for our defence sector and the ship modernisation market and has secured our position in supporting the US Navy Fleet with world-class installation services.
