VTG has won a prime contract from the U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs to provide engineering services for the Navy’s hypersonic strike capability.
Under the contract, VTG will support the Conventional Prompt Strike Program Office, a division of the Strategic Systems Programs. The company will provide research and development expertise, systems engineering, test planning and test engineering, logistics and a range of programmatic and technical services.
“VTG is honored to partner with Navy SSP and the CPS Program Office in developing and fielding a hypersonic weapon,” said VTG President and CEO John Hassoun. “We recognize the importance of hypersonic technologies as a deterrent to near-peer competitors, and we are proud to be a key member of the growing hypersonic industrial base.”
The Conventional Prompt Strike program will provide the Navy with a hypersonic conventional weapon capable of precise, timely and long-range strike against soft- and medium-hardened targets.
Sunil Ramchand, VTG chief growth officer, said VTG is excited to add hypersonics to its growing portfolio of engineering expertise.
“We’re looking forward to supporting the CPS program and doing what we do best: leveraging top engineering and technical talent to rapidly deliver transformative capabilities and technologies to the Fleet,” he said.
