SAN DIEGO, 17 Oct. 2010. U.S. Navy officials needed military client server applications that provide access to non-propulsion electronic systems on Navy Virginia-class fast attack submarines and various commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) subsystems. They found their solution from Progeny Systems Corp. in Manassas, Va.
Progeny will develop and modify client server applications to access Virginia-class submarine electronic systems and COTS subsystems under terms of a $9.5 million one-year contract awarded Friday.
Progeny Systems also will provide the Navy with a “fly away” team and equipment to support timely client server service worldwide. Awarding the contract were officials of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Systems Center Pacific in San Diego.
The contract, which is part of a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) phase-3 agreement, has four one-year options that could increase the value of the Progeny Systems contract to as much as $49.9 million, Navy officials say. Progeny experts will do the work in Portsmouth, Va., and in Groton, Conn.
