A Charleston company received a $7.8 million contract to provide engineering and other planning services for bridge control systems on aircraft carriers.
Life Cycle Engineering will also provide development, implementation, execution, maintenance and upgrading for aircraft carrier networks, navigation and integrated bridge control systems. The Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division in Philadelphia awarded the contract.
“Life Cycle Engineering has been providing engineering, technical and programmatic support to the fleet for more than 35 years,” said Rick Boncal, vice president and regional director of the mid-Atlantic region of Life Cycle Engineering’s engineering services group. “This important win is a credit to the professionalism, hard work and dedication of our people as well as our partners.”
Life Cycle Engineering will perform most of the work in Norfolk, Va., and some in Philadelphia and aircraft carrier ports, said Catherine Marshall, a spokeswoman for the company, which has regional offices in Norfolk and Philadelphia. The contract expires in 2015.
