Kollmorgen Corporation, Electro-Optical Division, Northampton, Massachussetts, is being awarded a $16 million contract modification to exercise cost-type options for the materials and travel associated with engineering services for the photonics mast program. The photonics mast is a non-hull penetrating electronic imaging subsystem of the command and control system. The photonics mast incorporates visible, infrared and electronic support measures sensors and stealth features that will provide new capabilities for attack submarines. The subsystem comprises the sensor group, the mast group, the data transmission group, and the control and display group.
Three Phoenix Incorporated, Fairfax, Virginia, is being awarded a nearly $6 million firm-fixed-price modification to previously awarded contract for a technology insertion photonics mast. The procurement of this mast will allow for the continued engineering assessment, design and development of a non-developmental item submarine optronics system. The Small Business Innovative Research Phase III contract is to provide engineering services to support software development, procurement of commercial off-the-shelf products, and hardware/software integration required to provide improved technology for U.S.
