A Concurrent Technologies Corp. subsidiary will help develop a minesweeping system for Navy helicopters, the company announced Thursday.
Enterprise Ventures Corp. will make the carriage, steam, tow and recovery system for the MH-60 Seahawk under a potential $31,969,022 contract.
President and CEO Ed Sheehan said in a release that the company anticipates to add nearly 10 jobs over the course of the contract.
He added that design and development work took 12 years and that Navy will use the mine countermeasures on littoral combat ships.
Feasibility studies began 12 years ago and testing and development of the system took nearly 18 months, said David Schario, president of the subsidiary and the company’s president for physical sciences and engineering.
Initial work will begin next week and production should take place within four months, said Ed Peretin, a program director.
CTC was also included under a potential $230 million Navy contract for C4ISR support alongside GDIT and SAIC.
