The AEGIS shipbuilding program, one of the largest and most successful acquisition programs in the Department of Defense, has provided the U.S. Navy with the world’s most capable surface combatant ships. AEGIS ships now make up the majority of the Navy’s destroyers and all of its cruisers. Although new AEGIS destroyers continue to be built, the oldest cruisers will begin their midlife upgrades in 2006. These improvements will include enhancements to the combat systems to keep pace with developing anti-ship missiles and to add a new Theater Ballistic Missile Defense (TBMD) capability to the Navy.
TSC has been involved with the AEGIS Combat System development, production, and operational support for over 25 years. This technical support includes many different activities being performed across the company. TSC’s single largest contract is the AEGIS Combat System Technical Support contract. Through this contract, TSC provides direct engineering support to the AEGIS Technical Division of the Program Office for Anti-Air Warfare (AAW) and TBMD Systems Engineering.
