CVN-80 Enterprise

Just as the Big E did when she was delivered 51 years ago, the FORD class represents a true leap-ahead ship that will be the centerpiece of U.S. naval power for the rest of the 21st century, proudly carrying on the tradition and legacy of ENTERPRISE. Seven ships have borne the name ENTERPRISE, and CVN 65 or Big E is a legend in itself as the most decorated warship in U.S. history. Pivotal in every U.S. conflict since its commissioning, the first nuclear aircraft carrier Enterprise changed the future of naval aviation.

Huntington Ingalls Inc. (HIINC), Newport News, Virginia, was awarded a $152,005,409 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract on 24 May 2016 for initial advance procurement efforts in support of the fiscal 2018 detail design and construction of nuclear powered aircraft carrier Enterprise (CVN 80). Initial advance procurement efforts include integrated design, research and development, engineering, and procurement of long lead time materials. The design and construction of a nuclear powered aircraft carrier requires highly technical and specialized knowledge of the ships mission, design, systems, and nuclear reactor plants. HIINC is the nations only designer and builder of nuclear powered aircraft carriers. HIINC has developed a unique capability encompassing all aspects of aircraft carrier design, construction, modernization, repair, and technical and engineering support which, because of its uniqueness, cannot be acquired elsewhere.

Work will be performed in Newport News, Virginia, and is expected to be completed by March 2018. Fiscal 2016 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy); and fiscal 2016 research, development, test and evaluation (Navy) funds in the amount of $29,708,000 will be obligated at time of award and funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was not competitively procured in accordance with 10 U.S. Code 2304(c)(1) - only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity (N00024 16-C-2116).
