Rite-Solutions Awarded Seven-Year, $21 Million Navy Submarine Contract
MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — Rite-Solutions was recently awarded a seven-year, $21 million Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) contract, the company said in a June 25 release.
The company will provide development and engineering services on two subsystems of the AN/BYG-1 combat system deployed on U.S. Navy submarines and Collins-class submarines in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Under the contract, Rite-Solutions will add new capabilities to the Inter Subsystem Monitoring Tool (ISMT) and the Onboard Team Trainer-Master Controller.
“For ISMT, we will develop an intuitive, unified view to eliminate challenges users currently have with different displays,” said Ken Hartlaub, program manager for AN/BYG-1 systems at Rite-Solutions.
Rite-Solutions will also be adding more functionality to the training and simulation system.
“Our goal is to help sailors make a smoother transition from the schoolhouse when they continue their training at sea,” Hartlaub said.
The Submarine Combat and Weapon Control Systems Program Office (PMS 425) at NAVSEA awarded the contract to Rite-Solutions after a year-long proposal process.
“We are pleased to continue working with PMS 425 on these important subsystems,” says Dennis McLaughlin, chief executive officer and president of Rite-Solutions. “This contract win highlights Rite-Solution’s unique value. As a small business, we are small, agile, nimble and innovative.”
