Westinghouse Electric Awarded $2-Million Navy Contract For Frigate Study

The U.S. Navy has selected the Westinghouse Electric Corporation's Command and Control Divisions in Baltimore to participate in the NATO Frigate Replacement Program (NFR-90). Dr. Robert S.

Johnson will be the NFR-90 program manager.

After competitive procurement, Westinghouse won the $2-million 20-month contract to be the Navy's industrial representative to the program for the Ship Feasibility Study.

This important penetration into the ship systems business could result in considerable future potential for the Command and Control Divisions.

In the NFR-90 Program, the NATO nations are working toward a jointly designed ship organization to collaborate and design one ship, as opposed to several ships. This is intended to bring about commonality in operations, training and support among the NATO countries.

Upon completion of the feasibility phase, each of the NATO nations will have the opportunity to continue in the program.
