Navy sets new deal for mine warfare systems support

The Naval Sea Systems Command has placed a 12-year, $115 million IT support order with longtime contractor R.M. Vredenburg Co. to continue managing the Navy's Surface Mine Warfare programs.

The Reston, Va., company will help mine warfare units bring new capabilities to the fleet, such as the Navy's first autonomous remote mine hunting system and upgrades to combat systems.

Vredenburg, which American Management Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va., acquired this summer, has been working with the Navy on its mine warfare systems since 1974.
