The Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) has awarded a defence, science, information technology and engineering company a US$42 million ($53 million) contract to support a signature silencing program.

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) has awarded a defence, science, information technology and engineering company a US$42 million ($53 million) contract to support a signature silencing program.

Leidos, which has expertise across submarine acoustics and naval engineering, won the five-year contract to support the Southeast Alaska Acoustic Measurement Facility's (SEAFAC) signature silencing program, with the work to be performed primarily in Ketchikan, Alaska, and Poulsbo, Washington. 

NSWCCD provides support for technical products over a wide range of scientific areas related to surface and undersea platforms including maritime science and technology. As the US Navy's primary acoustic engineering measurement facility in the Pacific, SEAFAC provides the capability to perform evaluations to determine the sources of radiated acoustic noise, to assess vulnerability and to develop quieting measures.

Under the contract, Leidos will continue to provide logistics, maintenance, operations and program management assistance services in support of Navy and marine signature silencing programs for naval ships and undersea systems. The project seeks to ensure all naval vessels have the lowest possible acoustic, infrared and radar signatures.

Leidos will support the operations and maintenance of SEAFAC during and between acoustic trials, including the operation, maintenance and repair of all SEAFAC assets and support systems, as well as provide communications and emergency services.

"We look forward to continuing to provide innovative logistics, maintenance and operations expertise to ensure SEAFAC is able to maintain a technical advantage in undersea systems," said Leidos Group president Mike Chagnon.
