Ace Appointed to Upgrade Tomahawk Weapons Control

Jan. 13, 2020
Ace Electronics Defense Systems has been awarded an upgrade contract for cable assemblies and engineering on the weapons control system of the Maritime Strike Tomahawk missile.

Ace Electronics, with expertise and experience in high-reliability interconnection technology, has received a five year, 64.4-million contract for an upgrade of the Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System (TTWCS) for the U.S. Navy. The contract was announced early in January and applies to the funding of production and delivery of manufacturing kits, spare parts, and testing for the TTWCS (AN/SWG-5(V)6) for the Maritime Strike Tomahawk. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division, Port Hueneme, Calif., is the contracting activity (N63394-20-D-0002).

Ace Electronics Defense Systems was founded in 2009 as a privately owned Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). The firm features high-quality interconnects and interconnect technologies using a six-sigma quality-control methodology. Ace Electronics features a number of quality certifications, including ISO 9001:2015, ITAR, IPC 620A, and AS9100D documentation. The company develops and manufactures standard and custom cable assemblies such as RF/microwave/ fiber-optic, and copper power cables, including TFOCA, MIL-C-28876, and M85045 cable assemblies.

The contract work on the TTWCS, a subsonic cruise missile, will provide new offensive capabilities to upgraded ships in support of the Maritime Strike Tomahawk, which allows the Tomahawk to engage a moving target at sea and upgrades the system hardware.

Work on the contract will be performed at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., with the five-year ordering period ending in January 2025. If all items are ordered, the contract will reach its full nominal value.
