VTG Books $80M Prime Contract to Support US Navy’s Hypersonic Strike Program

Digital transformation company VTG has announced a five-year, $80 million prime contract from the U.S. Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs unit to provide engineering support to the Conventional Prompt Strike initiative.

Through CPS, the Navy aims to acquire a hypersonic weapon to execute long-range strikes against time-critical, high-value targets, VTG said Tuesday.

The service branch intends to share the capability with the U.S. Army.

The first CPS weapon is expected to be deployed on Zumwalt-class destroyers and, later, on Virginia-class attack submarines.

VTG said it will provide SSP’s CPS program office with research and development expertise, logistics and various programmatic and technical services.

John Hassoun, VTG’s president and CEO, said his company has spent two years working on hypersonic capabilities with the Navy and industrial base partners.

The company secured a similar contract to support CPS in 2021.

News of the SSP contract follows a $40 million Navy task order awarded to VTG to implement infrastructure-as-a-service upgrades for the Aegis Combat System.
