DRS Laurel Producing CEC Sensor Netting System for the Navy
DRS Laurel Technologies, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, is awarded an $8,786,292 firm-fixed-price modification to previously awarded contract N00024-15-C-5228 to exercise options for the production of Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) AN/USG-3B equipment sets. CEC is a sensor netting system that significantly improves battle force anti-air warfare capability by extracting and distributing sensor-derived information such that the superset of this data is available to all participating CEC units. CEC improves battle force effectiveness by improving overall situational awareness and by enabling longer range, cooperative, multiple, or layered engagement strategies. Work will be performed in Largo, Florida, and is expected to be completed by February 2020. Fiscal year 2018 and 2016 aircraft procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $8,786,292 will be obligated at the time of award, and funds in the amount of $1,464,382 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
