The majority of the work will be conducted in Tucson, Ariz. (97 percent), with the remaining labor being performed in Sacramento, Calif. and Rocket Center, W.V. The project is expected to be finished by May 17, 2016.

The second deal Raytheon landed is a $9.93 million modification to an Air Force contract. The deal is for two Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) production lots. The modification makes possible the purchase of 24 Captive Air Training Missile AIM-120D guidance sections.

Obligated at the time of the award are $8.28 million in fiscal 2013 Air Force missile procurement funds and $1.65 million in fiscal 2015 Navy weapons procurement funds.

The DoD awarded RQ-Berg Joint Venture $25.33 million in exchange for a firm-fixed-price Navy task order which will result in the design and creation of infrastructure upgrades to Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center’s Camp Wilson. The work permits the extension of new and existing utilities within Camp Wilson.

The order includes a modification to the contract, which if exercised, would increase its overall value to $26.08 million. The contract was not acquired competitively. One offer was submitted for the work.

All of the labor will be conducted in Twentynine Palms, Calif, and should be finished by April 2017.

ViaSat Incorporated will be bequeathed a $12.3 million contract for the repairs of the Multifunctional Information Distribution Systems used on various aircraft platforms. 

Navy working capital funds will be provided when each individual delivery order is issued. None of the funds expire prior to the end of the current fiscal year.

The work will be conducted in Calrsbad, Calif. and should be completed by April 2018.

Austal USA is receiving an $11.03 million cost-plus-award-fee Navy order against a previous agreement to deliver "engineering and management services for advance planning and design in support of the post shakedown availability for the littoral combat ship Pre-Commissioning Unit Jackson (LCS-6)."

As part of the award, the LCS-6 will receive design, planning, and material support via Austal. The support will include program management, advance planning, engineering, design, liaison, material knitting, and scheduling.

At the time of the award, $10.36 million in fiscal 2015 shipbuilding and conversion funding will be indebted. Those funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The majority of work (77 percent) will be performed in Mobile, Ala., where Austal USA is based. The remaining labor will be conducted in Fairfax, Va. The project should be finished by September 2016.

A $9.99 million Navy contract medication is being awarded to 3E Technologies International Incorporated for "work on Navy-wide Critical Infrastructure Control and Monitoring System (CICMS) interface to Navy Virtual Perimeter Monitoring System for a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase III project."

The upsurge allows the CICMS to be put into Navy facilities beyond Naval District Washington. The change aids the Southeast and Hawaii Navy regions for incorporation on shore-based activates.

At the time of the award, $2.9 million in fiscal 2015 operations and maintenance and research, development, test and evaluation funding will be applied. Nearly that same amount, $2.7 million, will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

Half of the work on the project will be conducted in Hawaii, with the remaining labor being performed in Dahlgren, Va., San Diego, Indian Head, Md., Annapolis, Md., Patuxent River, Md., and Washington. The work should be finished by September 2015.
