Coast company getting piece of $58.5M Defense contract

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.

According to a news release from the Pentagon, the work is being divided among 13 offices around the country. It says the one in Long Beach is getting 13.4 percent. That’s the third-largest percentage and works out to about $7.8 million.

Offices in Arlington, Va., and Vancouver, Wash., will each get more than 25 percent.

The Pentagon says the work is expected to be complete by Aug. 15, 2015.
