October 22, 2019
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Teledyne Technologies Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) in Huntsville, Ala., was awarded a sole source contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for the follow-on production of MK11 Shallow Water Combat Submersible (SWCS) Systems. The contract, including all options, is valued at $178 million.
The SWCS System is a manned combat submersible vehicle designed to insert and extract Special Operations Forces (SOF) in high-threat areas. Under the initial contract with the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), TBE designed, manufactured, tested, and delivered the initial Engineering Development Model (EDM) SWCS System.
Due to the success of the program's EDM Phase, USSOCOM exercised options for TBE to produce and deliver additional MK11 SWCS Production Systems.
Under the new NAVSEA contract, TBE will continue production and delivery of MK11 SWCS Systems, including spare parts production and the provision of engineering and technical support services, through fiscal year 2024, if all options are exercised.
