SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina company has a Navy contract for up to $99 million over four years.

Advanced Technology International of Summerville was one of two competitors for the contract with the Office of Naval Research.

Work will be done for the Navy Manufacturing Technology Center for Innovative Naval Shipbuilding and Advanced Manufacturing.

The Pentagon’s contract announcement Wednesday said the first two orders are for $450,000. It had no other details.

“ATI is excited to continue supporting the Office of Naval Research’s Navy ManTech program in the development of manufacturing technologies that reduce the time and cost to build and repair Navy platforms,” said ATI President Chris Van Metre. “We are proud of our rich history with Navy ManTech and look forward to advancing the longstanding relationships with our partners to benefit the fleet.”

Advanced Technology International manages research and development consortia for federal contracts.

In July 2018, it received a three-year, $100 million contract to create and manage the Information Warfare Research Project Consortium for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Centers.

Work is expected to be completed in August 2024.
