Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training has been awarded a $72.4 million Navy contract for Trident II navigation subsystem engineering support services benefitting the United States and United Kingdom, the U.S. Department of Defense announced Wednesday.
If options are exercised, the cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract could be worth up to $147.3 million.
The work involved includes, among other things, strategic weapon training system and training system development for the Ohio-class SSBN-R submarine fleet support, trainer systems and fleet support for the U.S. and U.K., and software modernization.
Nearly all of the labor, 97 percent, will be performed in Mitchell Field, N.Y., with other work taking place in Florida and Virginia. Excluded the exercising of the involved options, the work should be finished on Sept. 30, 2017. If the options are exercised, the work would be expected to continue for one additional year. More than $70 million of the contract funds will expire at the end of the 2016 fiscal year.
