Leidos, a FORTUNE 500 science, information technology, and engineering company, was awarded a prime contract by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) to support the Southeast Alaska Measurement Facility (SEAFAC) signature silencing program.

The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five year period of performance and a total contract value of approximately $42 million. Work will be performed primarily in Ketchikan, Alaska, and Poulsbo, Wash.

NSWCCD provides support for technical products over a wide range of scientific areas related to surface and undersea platforms including maritime science and technology. As the Navy’s primary acoustic engineering measurement facility in the Pacific, SEAFAC provides the capability to perform evaluations to determine the sources of radiated acoustic noise, to assess vulnerability, and to develop quieting measures.

Leidos has supported SEAFAC for more than 20 years with expertise in submarine acoustics, civil, naval, architecture, ocean, mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering, program management, and complex logistics in remote locations. Under the contract, Leidos will continue to provide logistics, maintenance, operations, and program management assistance services in support of Navy and Marine signature silencing programs for naval ships and undersea systems. Leidos supports the operations and maintenance of SEAFAC during and between acoustic trials, including the operation, maintenance, and repair of all SEAFAC assets and support systems, as well as provide communications and emergency services.

“We look forward to continuing to provide innovative logistics, maintenance and operations expertise to ensure SEAFAC is able to maintain a technical advantage in undersea systems,” said Leidos Group President Mike Chagnon.
