Amentum has won a contract worth up to $462 million with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, Rhode Island, to provide range operations and maintenance support services.
Under the 10-year contract, Amentum will support the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center, the Navy’s large-area, deep-water undersea test and evaluation range. Activities include underwater research, testing and evaluation of anti-submarine weapons, and sonar tracking and communications.
“Amentum is pleased to have been awarded this contract in support of AUTEC, and we look forward to working with the Navy, our partners and other stakeholders to ensure the success of the test and training mission at this unique range,” said John Vollmer, CEO of Amentum.
Amentum will also provide program management and business operations services; security; program documentation; safety and environmental support; public works and base services; logistics support; testing services; air and marine services; and data acquisition, processing and analysis.
“We are honored to have this opportunity to build upon our existing work as a premier provider of advanced test and training range services,” said Karl Spinnenweber, president of Amentum’s Mission Readiness Strategic Business Unit. “Amentum is looking forward to extending our best-in-class range support services to the Navy in support of AUTEC’s critical mission.”
Work will be performed on Andros Island, Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and West Palm Beach, Florida.
