BAE Systems will manufacture a MK110 weapon system under a modified $8.9 million Navy contract, the United States Department of Defense (DoD) announced in its Wednesday publication of major military deals.
The MK 110 Mod 0 gun system includes the 57mm gun, a muzzle velocity radar, barrel-mounted television camera, power distribution panels, ammunition hoists, and an ultra-durable laptop gun control panel. The DoD said the MK 110 Mod O gun mount will be used against medium- to short-range surface targets. The gun will deliver warning and disabling fire aiding the anti-surface warfare events. Once BAE finishes the weapon system, the military will install it on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Midgett.
None of the funds being awarded with the contract will expire at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. The work will be conducted in Louisville, Ky., and should be finished by March 2018.
