NORFOLK, VA (October 24, 2018) – The U.S. Navy has awarded W R Systems Ltd., (WR) a $49,999,996 performance-based contract for the procurement of positioning, navigation and timing support services. This indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has provisions for cost-plus-fixed-fee and firm-fixed-price task orders.
WR, which held the previous contract and was awarded the renewal as a sole source acquisition, will continue to provide design, development, systems integration, acquisition, prototype engineering, technical documentation, and integrated logistics support for the Navy’s Integrated Product Team. As before, a team of over 250 WR employees will work with SPAWAR (Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic) to complete these essential requirements. Selecting WR means the Navy can count on the same high level of competence in its critical navigation systems.
“The renewal allows our team to work with navigation systems on every hull in the U.S. Navy, whether they are ships, submarines, aircraft carriers, both classes of littoral combat ships or DDG-1000 class destroyers,” says Paul Heim, Director for Strategic Customer Engagement at WR Systems.
Work will be performed in Norfolk, VA and is expected to be completed by October 2020.
