JAN. 24—The Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego has chosen two engineering and consulting firms to provide shipboard computer and communications equipment as part of a five-year systems upgrade contract that could be worth nearly $500 million.

The Navy's technology development lab at Point Loma, Calif., selected Resource Consultants Inc., of Vienna, Va., and AMSEC LLC of Virginia Beach, Va., to purchase new equipment and to ruggedize existing equipment, according to Tom LaPuzza, a spokesman for the center.

The contract is the largest to be awarded by the SPAWAR center, LaPuzza said.

Under the contract, specific work orders will be awarded to one of the two companies on a competitive basis.

About 70 percent of the work will be done at the San Diego center. Some work will also be conducted at naval stations in Bremerton, Wash., and Honolulu.
