As part of the Naval Sea Systems Command Integrated Underwater Surveillance System Product Support Facility contract, Serco will perform logistical assistance and product support maintenance of facilities for IUSS vessels and coastal vessels, the Herndon, Va.-based company announced Thursday.
“The Serco team is proud to have been selected to support the IUSS and its mission. We understand how critical the IUSS component is to the Navy’s anti-submarine and submarine warfare capabilities,” said Dave DacquinoCEO and President of Serco Inc. and a multiple Wash100 Price winner.

Serco’s latest IUSS project, funded by PMS 485 PEO Undersea Warfare Systems, is contracted for one base year and four option years.
