Navy to Release Undersea Warfare Combat System Production RFP in December

Arleigh Burke-class destroyerThe U.S. Navy has issued a draft statement of work on the production of a surface ship undersea warfare combat system and the service branch plans to seek proposals next month.

The Navy said in a FedBizOpps notice posted Thursday that the USW combat system program will involve Advanced Capability Build software integration and Technical Insertion hardware development, integration and production.

A selected contractor will provide software development; engineering services for the integration of updated and new software segments; design, development, production and delivery of each TI/ACB configuration; and system upgrades for all ship variants, the military branch added.

The USW combat system will support Ticonderoga-class (CG), Arleigh Burke-class (DDG), littoral combat ships, fast frigate, foreign military sales case development and other future surface combatant ships.

The Navy noted USW combat system is designed to be interoperable with the parent combat system of DDG and CG platforms and meant to serve as an element of the AEGIS combat system.

Interested parties can submit questions on the SOW through Nov. 16.
