SAN DIEGO - BAE Systems received a new 950-foot-long, 55,000-lifting-ton floating dry dock at its San Diego shipyard. The dry dock is part of the company’s $100 million investment in the yard to service the anticipated increase of U.S. Navy ships on the West Coast.

The new floating dry dock arrived at the company’s shipyard towed by the ocean-going and salvage tug Posh Terasea Eagle. Over the next two months, the BAE Systems team will complete final assembly, installation, testing, and certification of the dry dock, which will be operational in early 2017. The first ship to be serviced in the dry dock will be the San Diego-homeported amphibious transport dock ship USS New Orleans (LPD 18).

WASHINGTON - The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, Arizona, a $60.2 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00024-16-C-5400) to exercise an option for fiscal 2017 U.S. Navy Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Block 2 guided missile round pack (GMRP) requirements.

The RAM guided missile weapon system is co-developed and co-produced under an international cooperative program between the U.S.’ and Federal Republic of Germany’s governments. RAM is a missile system designed to provide anti-ship missile defense for multiple ship platforms.

This contract is to procure material, fabricate parts, assemble and test, and deliver RAM Block 2 MK 44 Mod 4 guided missile round packs. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $142.8 million.

Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona (49.1 percent); Ottobrunn, Germany (41.2 percent); Rocket Center, West Virginia (7.5 percent); Andover, Massachusetts (1.2 percent); and Cleveland, Ohio (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by October 2018. Fiscal 2017 weapons procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $60,194,970 will be obligated at the time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
