Shipbuilder Austal has won a $US19.9 million contract extension to provide support services for the shallow water combat ships it is building for the United States Department of Defense.

Austal said the modification to the contract exercised options to provide class service efforts, special studies, analysis and review of the $4.8 billion Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program.

Austal chief executive Andrew Bellamy said the company’s USA-based subsidiary would assess engineering and production challenges and evaluate the cost and schedule risks for the program.
