Concurrent Technologies to Support Airborne Mine Countermeasures

March 7, 2014

Concurrent Technologies Corp., Johnstown, Pa., was awarded a $15,338,026 cost-plus-fixed fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide engineering services in support of the continued modification of the carriage, stream, tow and recovery system to incorporate airborne countermeasures capabilities. The overall objectives of the carriage, stream, tow and recovery program are to design, fabricate, test and integrate a system for the carriage, stream, tow and recovery of all five airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) sensors to support the organic AMCM mission of the MH-60S helicopter. The Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, Panama City, Fla., is the contracting activity (N61331-14-D-0010).

Raytheon Receives Nearly $200 Million for Sonar Mine Detecting Technologies

February 21, 2014

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, Portsmouth, R.I., is being awarded a potential $199,692,601 fixed-price-incentive contract for the purchase of three AN/AQS-20A sonar, mine detecting sets with ancillary equipment. The AN/AQS-20A sonar, mine detecting set is a mine hunting and identification system with acoustic and identification sensors housed in an underwater towed body. The acoustic sensors are designed for the detection, classification and localization of bottom, close-tethered, and volume targets in a single pass. The identification sensor is designed for the identification of bottom mines. The system will be deployed from the Littoral Combat Ship as part of the Mine Countermeasures Mission Package. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity (N00024-14-C-6302).

By George Seffers

General Dynamics Advanced Informational Systems Incorporated, McLeansville, North Carolina, is being awarded a potential $86,719,986 contract with cost-plus-incentive-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee, and firm-fixed-price line items for the engineering, manufacturing and development of the Surface Mine Countermeasure Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (SMCM UUV). The SMCM UUV system will provide the fleet mine warfare commander with enhanced mine-hunting capability. The SMCM UUV system will address the Navy's need to reliably detect and identify undersea volume and bottom mines in high-clutter environments and areas with potential for mine case burial. The SMCM UUV will also gather environmental data to provide intelligence support for other mine warfare systems. SMCM UUV system will be a part of the Littoral Combat Ship MCM mission package. This contract will also contain an option for the production of up to five low rate initial production systems. The Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, Panama City Beach, Florida, is the contracting activity.
