The U.S. Department of Defense announced a small number of labor contracts Wednesday, including a $10.6 million Navy contract given to Lockheed Martin Aculight for work on multispectral electro-optic infrared, or EO/IR, countermeasures, the U.S. Department of Defense announced in its Wednesday digest of labor contracts.
The countermeasures benefit the “advanced threats function of the EO/IR surveillance and response system program,” according to the DoD.
The Navy received five bids for the cost-plus-fixed-fee completion contract, which will be incrementally funded. None of the funding being provided at the time the contract is awarded will expire at the end of 2016. The labor will be performed in Bothell, Wash., and is slated to be finished March 1, 2020.
Other Noteworthy Contracts
Boeing is being awarded a $9 million modification to a Navy contract for two engineering change proposals that will rectify “fracture critical and maintenance critical areas in support of the F/A-18A-D service life extension program,” the DoD said.
None of the funds being awarded with the contract will expire at the end of 2016. The labor will be conducted in St. Louis, and should be finished in June 2017.
