BAE Systems has been awarded a US Navy contract worth $192 million to complete the installation and combat systems activation for two Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyers.

“BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair, San Diego, California, is being awarded a maximum value $192,682,485 cost-plus-award-fee, firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for post-delivery execution yard efforts to accomplish post-delivery industrial availabilities including but not limited to post-delivery availabilities, mission systems activation, and post shakedown availabilities (PSA) of USS Zumwalt (DDG-1000) and USS Michael Monsoor (DDG-1001),” the US Department of Defense announced Monday.

The work to be performed will include the completion and installation of the combat systems; the execution and corrective action required for government responsible trial cards/deficiencies; new work identified between custody transfer and PSA; and execution of approved engineering changes that do not fall under the scope defined in the ship’s construction contract, the statement said.

Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by September 2021.
