$5.3-Million Navy Support Contract Awarded To Tracor

Tracor Inc. has received a $5.3- million contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command for continued engineering and technical support for the U.S. Navy's strategic and attack submarine fleet.

The contract work will be performed in the company's Applied Sciences Group operations in Rockville, Md., and Groton, Conn.

William C. Moyer, group vice president for Tracor Applied Sciences, said that Tracor's effort is directed at providing the technology necessary for the development and implementation of dedicated maintenance and modernization programs to support the submarine Extended Operating Cycle (EOC) concept. The submarine EOC program extends the interval between submarine overhauls to achieve a higher, stabilized level of deployed submarines, and maintains a high state of readiness at lower cost. According to Dr. Moyer, Tracor has been providing engineering and technical support to the submarine EOC program since its inception in 1974.

William F. Thompson, division vice president of the Systems Technology Division of Tracor Applied Sciences, announced that L.B. Cable Jr. will continue as program manager for the contract.

The work will be performed in Tracor's Submarine Engineering Department in Rockville under the direction of Mr. Cable, and in Groton under the direction of M.P. Hall.
