Systems Planning and Analysis (SPA) has been awarded a five-year contract to support the Force Development and Integrated Warfare Offices of United States Fleet Forces Command (USFFC), the company reported on Friday.

Under this contract, SPA will support the Director of Fleet Capabilities and Force Development with analysis and assessment of capabilities to assist with USFFC Force Development’s role to deliver a more lethal Fleet.

“Providing knowledge based solutions to help the U.S. Navy identify capabilities and requirements to maintain a robust Fleet well into the future is what our team of dedicated professionals is passionate about,” said Dr. William Vantine, SPA president and CEO. “We are excited to undertake this new work supporting United States Fleet Forces Command and look forward to a successful partnership.”

SPA’s contract adds to the company’s history developing warfare systems. In addition to the recent contract, the company secured a 5-year, $20 million prime follow-on contract by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to support naval warfare and weapons.

The company has worked to provide technical and operational analysis, modeling and simulation, and technology transition planning and management to the Submarine Security Program for Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Undersea Warfare Division and Office of Naval Research Sea Warfare and Weapons.

The contract will also support the agency’s stakeholder organizations, such as the Naval Sea Systems Command and the Naval Research Laboratory. The SPA team has well-established capabilities to support this critical program and has provided support services to ONR in a variety of areas for many years.

“SPA has been honored to serve and support the ONR for over 10 years,” said Edward Wright, Undersea Warfare and Systems Division director in regards to the $20 million contract. “We are humbled and grateful to be able to continue our work supporting the Navy’s Submarine Security requirements.”
