U.S. Navy Maritime Engineering & Sustainment Jobs

Serco is operating under a program in which we are responsible for designing, building, outfiting, and testing the Landing Platform Dock (LPD) amphibious ships and to provide maintenance support. LPDs are used to transport and land Marines, their equipment, and supplies by embarked Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) or conventional landing craft and Amphibious Assault Vehicles (AAV) augmented by helicopters or vertical take-off and landing aircraft (MV 22).  These ships support amphibious assault, special operations, or expeditionary warfare missions and serve as secondary aviation platforms for amphibious operations. These ships perform a variety of expeditionary warfare missions and are designed to operate independently or as part of an Amphibious Task Force (ATF), Amphibious Readiness Group (ARG), Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG), or Joint Task Force (JTF).

The 26 ships of the San Antonio (LPD 17) class are a key element of the Navy’s seabase transformation.  The LPD 17 San Antonio class is the functional replacement for over 41 ships including the LPD 4 Austin class, LSD 36 Anchorage class, LKA 113 Charleston class, and LST 1179 Newport class amphibious ships.  The newly designated LPD Flight II ships (formerly LX(R)) will be the functional replacement for the LSD 41/49 Whidbey Island Class.  LPD 17-29 are designated as Flight I, and Flight II begins with LPD 30. With 11 LPD 17 Flight I ships delivered, two in construction and planned future procurement of 13 LPD 17 Flight II ships, the main focus of PMS 317 activities includes ship acquisition, technical/system integration, ship production, test, outfitting, GFE/GFI management, and post-delivery.
