AT&T Signs $49.5-Million U.S. Navy Contract For EMSP Modifications

AT&T has signed a $49.5 million contract with the U.S. Navy for modifications to its Enhanced Modular Signal Processor (EMSP). The modifications include the development of a water-cooled enclosure for subma- rines and a new helicopter enclosure.

Other modifications include the development of new circuit card modules, custom integrated circuits (ASICs), and additional software development.

Built to the Navy's Standard Electronic Module Format E (SEM E) specifications, the EMSP is being tailored to user needs under the Acoustics Systems Integration Program (ASIP) to further enhance antisubmarine capabilities of Navy submarines, helicopters and surface ships.

Long a Navy standard, the EMSP, built by AT&T to support a fleetwide upgrade of ASW systems, will give the Navy a much needed edge in locating submarines that are increasingly quiet and therefore difficult to detect.

The new EMSP contract will be managed at AT&T Federal Systems' Guilford Center facility near Greensboro, N.C., with design and engineering support from AT&T Bell Laboratories in Whippany, N.J.
