The following are selected defense contracts awarded to San Diego County companies in November and December. The U.S. Department of Defense releases a digest of contract awards daily at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

The U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract covering engineering services for networks and network user systems on San Antonio class amphibious transport dock ships. Such ships transport U.S. Marines and their landing craft. Specifically, Raytheon will provide services for the overall management, development, testing, troubleshooting, repair, configuration, maintenance and fleet sustainment of fielded networks and associated network user systems and clients on San Antonio-class ships. Raytheon received the contract without competitive bidding, as the government determined it was the only vendor that could meet the contract’s requirements. The deal has a $74.7 million ceiling and 80 percent of the work will be performed in San Diego, with the rest in Norfolk, Virginia and Mayport, Florida. The Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Philadelphia Division awarded the deal, announced on Nov. 29.
