Raytheon Co. has been awarded a $20 M contract from the Naval Sea System Command to develop the Combat Control System CCS Mk2 Weapons Control System. The contract has a potential value of $205 M (without material) over the four option years in addition to the base year. Raytheon is currently providing the baseline combat control system for Los Angeles class and Virginia class submarines, as well as for the Collins class submarines in Australia.
To bring best value to the effort, Raytheon has identified a team of key strategic partners called "Team Subnet." Team Subnet includes small and large businesses that possess the technical domain expertise to most effectively meet Navy requirements. Current team members include: Orincon Defense; Trident Systems, Inc.; Progeny Systems; 21st Century Systems; Architecture Technology Corp.; DynCorp Range Technical Services; Advanced Solutions for Tomorrow; Rite Solutions; Aquidneck Management Associates; Control Systems Analysis; Sohar; and Purvis Systems Inc., as well as the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC).
As part of the overall submarine combat system, the Weapon Control System is responsible for the control and launch of Tomahawk missiles, and Mk48 heavy weight torpedoes. The program potentially includes production, systems upgrades, prototype development and retrofit kit builds for existing combat systems. The work will build from the existing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based CCS Mk2 open architecture and will support the Navy Advanced Processing Build technology refresh.
