MSC Awards $41.7-Million

Contract To Sea Mobility

To Operate T-AGOS Ships

The Navy's Military Sealift Com- mand has awarded a $41.7-million contract to Sea Mobility, Inc. of

Houston for the operation and maintenance of 12 T-AGOS-1 Class ocean surveillance ships. The con- tract took effect February 1 this year and will continue through Sep- tember 30, 1989.

T-AGOS ships are the platform and transportation for SURTASS, a passive undersea surveillance sys- tem. The 12 ships will operate worldwide, alternating their mis- sions at sea with calls at overseas ports. Six of the vessels will be homeported in Pearl Harbor and six in Little Creek, Va.

All 12 ships are being built for the

Navy by Tacoma Boat Building

Company in Washington. Three have been delivered to MSC, the remaining nine will be completed over the next two and one-half years.

An MSC-employed Civil Service crew will man each ship for the first 11 months following delivery, after which it will be turned over to Sea

Mobility for operation by its em- ployees. In addition to the operating crew of about 18, each ship will car- ry seven SURTASS technicians.

Rated To 2,200 PSI —Literature Available

Full flow, X-inch ball valves with swing-out bodies for fast, easy main- tenance are now available from

The unique stem packing is spring loaded to self adjust for wear as well as changes in pressure and temperature, thereby preventing stem leakage. A patent- ed three piece seat design compen- sates for wear and prevents leakage past the ball.
