BAE Systems has received a potential $72 million contract to help the U.S. Navy modernize a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser ship.
BAE said Monday the contract contains a $9.6 million initial value and covers USS Philippine Sea (CG 58) docking selected restricted availability efforts.
“We will utilize our cruiser experience to accomplish the DSRA and return the ship back to the fleet ready for continued service,” said Todd Hooks, general manager of BAE’s ship repair facility in Jacksonville, Florida.
The company is scheduled to commence work on board USS Philippine Sea in April and finish by February 2019.
Contract work will occur at BAE’s Jacksonville shipyard and at the Naval Station Mayport.
