The Naval Undersea Warfare Center has selected Serco to receive a potential five-year, $49 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to deliver system engineering technical services for the Submarine High Data Rate (SubHDR) program, Serco announced on Tuesday.

“This was a key recompete win for our business and we are proud to have the opportunity to continue delivering systems engineering services to the Navy through this contract vehicle,” said Dave Dacquino, chairman and CEO at Serco Inc.

Serco will continue to perform repair and overhauls to the SubHDR Antenna Pedestal Group (APG) as well as perform evaluation and repair to related sub-components. In addition, the work on this contract supports a mission-critical system that provides the U.S. submarine fleet the ability to send and receive information such as secure wide-band communications, voice and data traffic, imagery and video teleconferencing.

“With many of the SATCOM and radar systems both on ships and shore requiring maintenance and repairs, our teams are hard at work delivering sustainment and obsolescence engineering services that enable customers to extend the lives of existing systems,” Dacquino added.

The majority of work will be performed out of Serco’s facility in Ludlow, Massachusetts.
