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.  The Company’s work on this contract supports a mission-critical system that provides the US submarine fleet the ability to send and receive information such as secure wide-band communications, voice and data traffic, imagery and video teleconferencing. The contract has an estimated ceiling value of $49 million over five years.

“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. “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.”

The majority of work will be performed out of Serco’s facility in Ludlow, Massachusetts. Serco provides satellite communications (SATCOM), radar modernisation, operations and maintenance and sustainment services at the 33,000 square foot production and repair facility, that enable customers to extend the lives of existing systems and achieve phased upgrades with new technology to enhance operational capability, plus an indoor near-field and compact antenna test range.
