Navy Awards Tracor $4.6-Million Contract

For Submarine Program

Tracor, Inc., of Austin, Texas, announced recently that its Ap- plied Sciences Group has received an initial $4.6-million contract with a potential value in excess of $9.9-million over the next two years from the Naval Sea Sys- tems Command. The contract is for continued engineering and technical support for the Navy's strategic and attack submarine fleet.

William C. Moyer, group vice president for Tracor Applied Sci- ences, said Tracor's effort is di- rected at providing the engineer- ing disciplines and technology necessary for the development and implementation of dedicated maintenance and modernization programs to support the sub- marine Extended Operating Cycle (EOC) concept. The submarine

EOC program extends the inter- val between submarine overhauls to achieve a higher, stabilized level of deployed submarines and maintains a high state of readi- ness.

According to Mr. Moyer, Tracor has been providing engineering and technical support to the sub- marine EOC program since its inception in 1974.

William M. Pugh, division vice president of the Systems Tech- nology Division of Tracor Ap- plied Sciences, announced that

D.L. Campbell will continue as program manager for the con- tract. The work will be performed in Rockville, Md., under the di- rection of L.B. Cable Jr., and in
