Rite-Solutions awarded $71.5M EW contract
Middletown, RI-based Rite-Solutions announced on February 3 that it has been awarded a new contract by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport (NUWCDIVNPT), with a potential value of $71.5 million over the next five years. The company will provide engineering and technical services to the Undersea Warfare Electro Magnetic Systems Department including systems engineering, integration and test, fleet support, and lab support for the Navy’s imaging and electronic warfare systems.
“This is the largest single award contract in Rite-Solutions’ 20-year history,” said Joe Marino, the chairman of Rite-Solutions’ board of directors and one of the company’s founders.
Dennis McLaughlin, President and CEO, said, “This award is a game-changer for Rite-Solutions and will expand our ability to provide critical engineering expertise to the Navy. Further, this adds to our impressive string of contract awards over the past three years.”
The contract will be performed in the Newport, RI area, as well as at critical facilities and Naval bases worldwide supporting both development and fleet response requirements in areas where the Navy has indicated a significant need.
Ken Haner, senior vice president and director of engineering services, and Mike Coffey, executive vice president and general manager, who teamed up to lead the contract capture, emphasized its importance to Rite-Solutions. The submarine force has been working to increase its capabilities in the electronic warfare domain. This contract award allows Rite-Solutions to support those efforts and solidifies its role as a leading provider of undersea warfare systems and software engineering to the Navy, they said.
