SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Research Institute is one of 23 organizations awarded a contract valued up to nearly $800 million over the next five years to support unmanned undersea vehicle research and development for the U.S. Navy.

"SwRI has a long history of providing innovative services in ocean engineering and subsea research," said Joe Crouch, program director of Marine and Offshore Systems in SwRI's Mechanical Engineering Division. "Our expertise in the construction of marine structures, such as low-cost, high-quality pressure hulls, is particularly beneficial to this Navy program."

The contract is an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity award, a contract vehicle that funds work tasks over specified periods of time — five years, in this case.
