Noblis subsidiary wins $72M Navy contract
Noblis MSD will modernize systems for naval surface ships
Reston-based Noblis subsidiary Noblis MSD (mission solutions for defense) won a potential $72 million contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division.
Under the five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity multi-award contract, Philadelphia-based Noblis MSD, previously McKean Defense Group LLC, will work on system modernization and sustainment for naval surface ships. The company will compete for task orders to deliver engineering, logistics, cybersecurity and waterfront training.
“The Noblis MSD team has a long-standing relationship with the Navy and unique experience with this program,” Noblis MSD president Glenn Hickok said in a statement. “We look forward to building on this experience to help the Navy achieve critical modernization and security goals.”
Work will be performed in Philadelphia and at various naval ports.
Noblis spun off from The Mitre Corp.’s Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in 1996. It acquired McKean Defense Group, at the time an employee-owned defense contractor specializing in U.S. Navy surface ship readiness, on April 30 and rebranded it in July.
