Since becoming prime contractor for both the Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship and Expeditionary Fast Transport programs, Austal has grown our Post Delivery Service & Support divisions and have received, and are actively competing for, maintenance and training contracts for both ship platforms.

Austal has received service contracts to provide:

  • Post Shakedown Availability (PSA) services
  • Industrial Post Delivery Availability (IPDA) services (planning and execution of work)
  • Post Delivery Availability (PDA) services (planning and execution of work)
  • Crew training and courseware development services
  • Maintenance and repair services

Sustainment & Global Support

Austal USA has operations service centers in San Diego and Singapore that are designed to support Austal's sustainment and global support business.

Austal USA has established a repair facility in the Port of San Diego. The facility sits on a waterfront site in National City adjacent to Naval Base San Diego and is currently available for topside availabilities.  Austal USA’s 15-acre site focuses on ship repair for U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, and U.S. Coast Guard ships. The facility features full service ship repair capability providing maintenance and modernization for small surface combatants, unmanned and autonomous vessels, and other ships. The site includes a dry dock with 9,000 long ton lifting capacity optimized to execute availabilities on Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) and other small surface combatants. It is 531 feet (162 meters) long, 154 feet (47 meters) wide, with a maximum draft of 36 feet (11 meters). The dry dock arrived at Austal's San Diego repair yard in August 2023 and, after site dredging is complete, will be fully operational in early 2024.

Services at the repair facility include technical and material support, topside work, and, eventually, drydocking availabilities.  The new facility will enable more availabilities to be completed in their home port of San Diego reducing the strain on the fleet and Sailors.

Austal USA also routinely deploys fly-away teams to support global onsite repair and service requirements.
