PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded an $18.5 million, firm-fixed price contract Sept. 29 to Tomco Corp. of Honolulu for design and construction of an advanced radar detection laboratory (ARDEL) at Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) on Kauai.

Tomco Corporation will construct a new two-story ARDEL consisting of a radar tower turret, mechanical and electrical rooms, radar chiller and control rooms, equipment storage and loading areas, data processing room and other supporting spaces.

"PMRF has been working closely with the ARDEL program for some time and breaking ground on the construction of this facility will put us a step closer to actually realizing a new capability here," said PMRF Commanding Officer Capt. Aaron Cudnohufsky.

"This advanced program will not only further the Navy's ability to protect and serve our nation and our allies, but also strengthen PMRF's status as a diverse and important training and test and evaluation resource for our country," added Cudnohufsky.

The actual contract award amount is $18,475,900, and it also contains one option, which if exercised, would increase the cumulative contract value to $18,481,600.

Work is expected to be completed by August 2011.

This contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online (NECO) website with 10 proposals received.
