AMSC Awarded Contract with Ingalls Shipbuilding

On May 13, AMSC (AMSC) announced that the company received a contract award from Huntington Ingalls Industries through its Ingalls Shipbuilding division. Under the terms of the contract, AMSC will provide a high temperature conductor-based ship protection system for the San Antonio class of amphibious transport dock ship. The system reduces the magnetic signature of the ship, which interferes with the ability of undersea mines to detect and damage the ship.
