DeWITT, N.Y. — Saab, Inc.’s DeWitt operation has been awarded a nearly $18.2 million modification to a previously awarded contract from the U.S. Navy.

The firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed-fee adjustment to this pact will exercise options for production and engineering support of Multi-Mode Radar (MMR) systems.

Under this contract, Saab manufactures, inspects, tests, and delivers MMR systems to be deployed on Navy Expeditionary Support Base ships and Coast Guard (USCG) Offshore Patrol Cutters (OPC) and provide engineering support of delivered MMR systems, according to a Dec. 21 Defense Department contract announcement.

The MMR serves as the primary sensor for air surveillance, surface surveillance, and gun-weapon system cueing for the USCG OPC. Work will be performed in DeWitt (64 percent) and Gothenburg, Sweden (36 percent). It is expected to be completed by April 2022.

Fiscal 2021 other procurement (Navy), fiscal 2019 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy), and fiscal 2020 other procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $17.8 million will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year, the Defense Department said.

The Naval Sea Systems Command at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., is the contracting authority.
