LONG BEACH — A Mississippi company is getting a chunk of a $58.5 million contract to design, build and demonstrate a prototype unmanned trimaran for anti-submarine warfare.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency awarded the contract yesterday to Science Applications International Corp. of McLean, Va.
