This contract supports various Navy shipbuilding programs that require integrated C4I capabilities to provide communications for maritime operations and flight safety.  The integrated capabilities will provide a given command or ship an extension of the tactical horizon, and provide threat indications and warnings.  These capabilities will also provide tactical threat analysis and the capability to target the indicated threat entities.

The contract provides shipboard C4I services for multiple platforms simultaneously aboard new construction and overhaul of aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious ships including refuelling and complex overhaul ships.  Tasks to be performed by Serco include:

    Systems and Design Engineering
