San Diego–based BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair company is awarded a $41,8 million contract for the execution of San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Anchorage (LPD 23), according to the U.S. Department of Defense.

The department said this availability will include a combination of maintenance, modernization, and repair of USS Anchorage (LPD 23).

BAE will provide the facilities and human resources capable of completing, coordinating, and integrating multiple areas of ship maintenance, repair, and modernization.

This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $48,428,791.

Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by July 2020.

San Antonio class amphibious transport dock ships are warships that embark, transport and land elements of a landing force for a variety of expeditionary warfare missions.

The San Antonio class is the functional replacement for over 41 ships including the LPD 4 Austin class, LSD 36 Anchorage class, LKA 113 Charleston class, and LST 1179 Newport class amphibious ships. The newly designated LPD Flight II ships (formerly LX(R)) will be the functional replacement for the LSD 41/49 Whidbey Island Class. The San Antonio class provides the Navy and Marine Corps with modern, sea-based platforms that are networked, survivable, and built to operate in the 21st century, with the MV-22 Osprey, the upgraded Amphibious Assault Vehicle, and future means by which Marines are delivered ashore.
