In-Service Support


The Submarine Fire Control System In-Service Support Contract (SFCS ISSC) provides in-service support to Fire Control Systems installed on all four Victoria Class submarines.


The Submarine Fire Control System is critical for the submarine weapon firing capability as well as the tactical picture compilation which is a safety-critical function. The response time required under this contract to complete repairs when submarines are at sea is required to be within two to four hours. Services contracted under the SFCS ISSC also include emergent engineering tasks that are raised in the form of studies, design, prototyping and development to address obsolescence.
