TORRANCE, CA. July 13, 2022 — Stellant Systems, Inc. (“Stellant”) was one of two companies recently awarded a $91M IDIQ contract from the U.S. Navy. The five-year contract is to repair crossed field amplifiers (CFA) for the AEGIS Combat System. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will involve reconditioning and overhauling three different types of CFA electron tubes. This work will be performed at Stellant’s Williamsport, PA. facility.

Naval Supply Systems Command’s weapon systems support organization carried out the solicitation for the “limited-competitive requirement,” according to the award notice.

The AEGIS combat system, produced by Lockheed Martin, uses computer and radar technology to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets and is currently being utilized by multiple foreign armed forces. Today, a total of 113 AEGIS-equipped ships have been deployed and more are planned.

Steve Shpock, General Manager of Stellant’s Williamsport, PA facility said, “We have been manufacturing the current configuration of the AEGIS CFA for the U.S. Navy for over 30 years. This latest contract is a continuation of our longstanding partnership. The CFA product we produce today has included many incremental advancements over the years and illustrates our continued support of the warfighter.”
