Navy chooses contractor to provide 4-D battlespace imaging technology

The Office of Naval Research yesterday hired a prime contractor to serve as system architect and integrator for the Navy's Theater Undersea Warfare program. The $25 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract went to Orincon Corp. International of Kailua, Hawaii.

The undersea warfare program, which is to be completed by June 2007, will improve submarine detection capabilities.

The goal of the contract is to develop the tools and technology so that an undersea warfare commander can rapidly perceive an underwater battle, define the 4-D battlespace, and identify and allocate resources for joint and coalition forces,
said Ty Aldinger, the company's director of programs. Aldinger is a retired naval officer and oceanographer.
