Western Australian shipbuilder Austal has announced that the US Department of Defense has awarded Austal USA a modification to the previously awarded Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) contract.

The modification provides Austal with a total potential additional value of US$43,362,000. Work is expected to be complete by June 2021. The contract modification exercises options for LCS Class design services, material to support LCS Class design services and the US Navy’s Integrated Data Product Model Environment (IDPME).

Austal will provide LCS Class design services to all LCS ships and services may include programme management, fitting out services, change processing, software maintenance, engineering and lifecycle efforts.

Austal will maintain an IDPME that will enable Navy access to enterprise LCS data management.
