Saab, Inc., Syracuse, New York, is awarded a $15,002,000 firm-fixed-price undefinitized contract for Multi-Mode Radar production for the United States Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Cutter. Work will be performed in Syracuse, New York (60%), and Gothenburg, Sweden (40%) and is expected to be completed by April 2025. Fiscal 2022 other procurement (Navy) funds in the amount of $11,101,480 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was not competitively procured in accordance with 10 U.S.C 2304(c)(1) — only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy the needs of the agency. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity (N00024-22-C-5530).
I found previous reports of procurement of this system for the OPC program in 20217, 2018, and 2019, but none for 2020 or 2021. This is probably for the fourth OPC. The April 2025 delivery date sounds about right, since the fourth OPC will probably not be delivered until 2026.
This radar also equips all Independence class Littoral Combat Ships and at least some of the Expeditionary Sea Base shps.
An air control variant is expected to equip Nimitz class aircraft carriers and America- (LHA) and Wasp- (LHD) class amphibious assault ships.
This type radar also now equips two of the former USCG Hamilton class 378 foot cutters. All three Philippine 378s are expected to be so equipped.
