Reston-based Serco Inc. today announced that it has been awarded a new single-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the U.S. Military. The $31 million contract has a one-year base period with two option years, through which Serco will provide installation support for Close-In Weapons Systems (CIWS) on U.S. Navy, U.S. Army and U.S. Coast Guard vessels.
The new contract builds upon Serco’s existing Navy C4ISR contracts under which the company is providing installations and supporting upgrades on Navy vessels. Under the new contract, Serco will provide installations, upgrades and modifications to the CIWS, which is a point-defense weapon that detects and destroys low- and high-flying, high-speed maneuvering anti-ship missile threats that have penetrated outer defenses. Typically, these systems are mounted shipboard in a naval capacity. Serco will perform the work in Norfolk, Va.; San Diego, Calif.; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Mayport, Fla.; Eerett, Wash.; and various overseas ports.
“Serco has a rich history of supporting the U.S. Navy with C4ISR solutions and expertise,” said Dan Allen, Serco Inc.’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This program is a great addition to our C4ISR portfolio and we are ready to apply our experience to further the United States military and its shipboard defense systems.”
