Contract Design For Aircraft Carrier


Newport News Shipbuilding has met with US Navy officials to begin, formally, the contract design process for the final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, CVN 77. It is the first time in recent history that the company has worked with the US Navy to develop jointly the contract design for a carrier. The team includes representatives from Newport News Shipbuilding; Supervisor of Shipbuilding Newport News; Naval Sea Systems Command; Naval Air Force Atlantic; Naval Air Force Pacific; Naval Air Systems Command; Space and Naval Warfare System Command; and Navy laboratories. It is hoped that this process will help to resolve important issues that affect the capability and affordability of the ship."
The contract design, once complete, will include items such as drawings, specifications and a list of equipment intended to go into the ship. The Navy and Newport News will subsequently use this information as the basis for the CVN 77 construction contract.
The CVN 77 will serve as the transition ship to a new class of carriers. The planning contract for CVN 77 was awarded in September 1998 and reduces the cost impact of the production gap between CVN 76 and CVN 77. This contract includes three options that, if exercised, would bring the total value of this contract to approximately $190 million. To date, the approximate total value of the contract is $106 million. Full construction funding is expected in Fiscal Year 2001.
It is planned that CVN 77 will include new sensor and communication systems technology in an integrated combat system, reducing the total ownership cost of the ship and improving operational capabilities.
