SAN FRANCISCO, June 21 (UPI) -- A 15-month U.S. Navy task order has been given to URS Corp. for construction services in Hawaii for the land-based Aegis Ashore missile defense program.

The task order carries a maximum value of $129 million and comes under the Navy's Global Multiple Award Construction contract, which URS received in 2009.

"URS will install a radar deckhouse, support building, launch pad, electrical power and potable water systems, a sewer connection and synthetic natural gas and communications systems and perform related work to test a government-furnished, government-installed weapons system at the Pacific Missile Range Facility," the company said.

It will also make and erect a radar deckhouse, support building and perform related work to test a government-furnished, government-installed weapons system at Moorestown, N.J.

Pacific Missile Range, Barking Sands, is on the island of Kauai.

"URS has a long-standing history of successfully delivering engineering and construction services on mission critical programs related to national defense and homeland security," said Gary V. Jandegian, URS' president of Infrastructure and Environment.

"We are proud to have been selected for this assignment as part of our ongoing work to assist the Department of Defense in successfully completing mission-critical facility and infrastructure projects."
