USA: Austal to Support Survivability Testing Program on LCS

Austal Limited has been awarded an engineering services contract to support survivability testing on the U.S. Navy’s Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship.

The U.S. Navy awarded Austal USA a USD 6,7 million contract modification for the fabrication and assembly of a live fire test module.

The contract is in support of the U.S. Navy’s Independence-variant LCS survivability testing program, which is critical to class qualifications and the ships’ eventual deployment.

Work will be performed at Austal’s shipyard in Mobile, Alabama.

Austal has a USD 3.5 billion contract from the U.S. Navy to build 10 Littoral Combat Ships, with five ships currently under construction.
