US Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded a $12.5m contract to Raytheon for technical engineering, repair and maintenance services for the MK48 Advanced Capability (ADCAP) heavyweight torpedo.



Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is the US Navy’s prime production supplier of light and heavyweight torpedoes. It leads operations of the company’s Heavyweight Torpedo Intermediate Maintenance Activity (IMA) in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, a facility dedicated to torpedo evaluation, test and maintenance.



This award is a contract modification reflecting an exercised one-year option that was included in the original technical services contract awarded in April 2006. Under the contract, IDS will perform intermediate-level maintenance, repair and refurbishment of MK48 ADCAP torpedoes currently in the US Navy’s fleet inventory of training and warshot torpedoes. The inventory is used for fleet training, readiness and submarine-launched torpedo warshot exercises.



Work on the contract will be performed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Yorktown, Virginia and Poulsbo, Washington.
