Teledyne Microwave Solutions Awarded $7.5 Million TWT Repair Contract from the U.S. Navy

Teledyne Microwave Solutions and its parent company, Teledyne Technologies, have been awarded a $7.5 Million sole-source contract from the Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support (NAVSUP) in Philadelphia, PA.

The contract is for the repair of Traveling Wave Tubes (TWTs) used on the ALQ-99 system in support of the EA-18G “Growler” aircraft. Teledyne has supported the ALQ-99 system and its associated aircraft since the 1970’s. Teledyne’s engineering innovations in TWT technology continue to be deployed today to meet the stringent requirements of the U.S. Navy and other military purposes.

Execution of this firm-fixed-price contract award will be performed at Teledyne’s 160,000 square foot production facility in Rancho Cordova, California. TMS is expected to complete the contract work by November 2021. One source was solicited for this non-competitive requirement pursuant to the authority set forth in 10 U.S. Code 2304 (c)(1).

TMS manufactures a broad range of Traveling Wave Tube technologies and applications for use in diverse markets. Teledyne TWTs are found on nearly all major Electronic Warfare, Radar, and Communication platforms of the U.S. and its allies throughout the world. Their various product lines also include TWTs used for instrumentation, satellite communications, and other mission critical applications.
