Framing is under way for a high-tech weapons systems integration laboratory planned as the new gateway to the Naval Ship Weapons Systems Engineering Station at Port Hueneme.
The design for the $9.2-million laboratory was undertaken by Ross/Wou International of Los Angeles. Completion is expected in the fall of 1988. Cates Construction Co. Inc. of Lancaster is the general contractor.
The 110,000-square-foot, two-story facility, split at its apex and directional in nature, will have a central courtyard, said Michael F. Ross, the principal in charge of the project.
The 700-station center for computer communications and sophisticated engineering tests, Ross explained, will be equipped with modular furniture systems and central cable tray power distribution system.
