LGS Secures Subsea Cables Deal with U.S. Navy
LGS Innovations (LGS) has won an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a ceiling of $9.5 million to supply submarine telecommunication cables to the U.S. Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (NAVFAC EXWC).
Under the terms of the contract, LGS Innovations has subcontracted Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks (ASN) to design, manufacture, and supply approximately 650 miles of subsea cable, with an expected operational lifetime of at least 20 years.
LGS is the exclusive reseller of Alcatel-Lucent products and services to the U.S. federal government.
“Maritime networking and communications is one of our core solution areas,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “We are proud to have established ourselves as a long-standing solution provider for the Navy. We look forward to providing continued high-quality solutions to yet another command within the United States Navy.”
According to LGS, the work is expected to be wrapped up by July 2016.
