L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) reports that it has been awarded a contract by shipbuilder Fincantieri Marinette Marine for the shipboard integration and production of major subsystems onboard the U.S. Navy’s first Constellation class (FFG 62) guided-missile frigate, FFG 62.
L3Harris says it is prepared to support the Navy’s plans to build at least 10 ships and that the value to it of the program could exceed $300 million if all design, development, and production options are awarded.
L3Harris will provide integrated systems that include the electric and propulsion systems, bridge and navigation systems, and aviation integration services. The diversified capabilities that L3Harris delivers on the Constellation-class frigate program will distribute the power and propulsion needed to meet the U.S. Navy’s mission requirements throughout the world.
“We’re excited by the opportunity to join the Fincantieri Marinette Marine team on the frigate program and we look forward to bringing to bear industry-best speed, innovation and affordability as we deliver the advanced integrated capabilities that will ensure the Navy’s ability to operate this ship with impunity upon any sea,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris.
