The U.S. Navy said on March 12 that it awarded Hamilton Sundstrand — now a unit of UTC Aerospace Systems — a five-year contract for work on specialized submarine equipment. The indefinite quantity, indefinite delivery deal could ultimately be worth $12.3 million.

Work will be concentrated at submarine ports, with 20 percent done in San Diego.

The deal covers equipment known as the central atmosphere monitoring system. A CAMS unit monitors the amount of gases in the submarine atmosphere, and is considered mission-essential equipment. Under the deal, the contractor will maintain, troubleshoot, repair and modernize three varieties of the systems, and train submarine crews to use them.

The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, Ship System Engineering Station of Philadelphia awarded the deal.
