Navy Taps Rolls-Royce for LCS Ancillary Parts Supply Contract - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Littoral-Combat-ShipRolls-Royce has received a potential three-year, $7.2 million contract to produce ancillary parts kits for the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ships.

The company will perform contract work in Walpole, Massachusetts, through April 2019 under the firm-fixed-price contract, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

The Naval Supply Systems Command‘s weapon systems support unit will obligate the full contract amount from the service branch's fiscal 2015 “other“ procurement funds at the time of award.

The military branch's sustainment strategy for the LCS program contains several elements.

These include dependence on shore support, scheduled preventive maintenance periods, shore-based training that involves the use of virtual reality platforms and a rotational crewing model in which two ships are run by three rotating crews.

Lockheed Martin builds the Freedom-variant LCS for the Navy, while General Dynamics and Austal are the contractors for the Independence-class LCS.
