June 14, 2018

Teradyne Inc., North Reading, Massachusetts, is awarded an $8,472,733 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a five-year ordering period for automated test system hardware and software to test circuit card assemblies (CCA) for the Mark 41 Vertical Launch System. The objective of the contract is to purchase a test system that can utilize legacy test program sets to read the CCAs for the MK41 VLS, producing timely and compatible test results without the need for costly redevelopment. Other deliverables include products of subscriptions to maintenance (software downloads and replacement boards), training, nominal hardware and software services to ensure that new test fixtures and test program sets will interface seamlessly with the automated test system. Work will be performed in North Reading, Massachusetts, and is expected to be completed by June 2023. Fiscal year 2018 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy) funding in the amount of $7,852 will be obligated on the first delivery order at the time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was not competitively procured, with one responsible source and no other supplies satisfying agency requirements. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, Dahlgren, Virginia, is the contracting activity.
