BAE Systems is one of 15 companies to win a spot on a massive $28 billion Defense Department R&D contract, the company announced.
Under the 9-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, BAE Systems is cleared to compete for task orders expected to exceed $15 million.
“This large-scale contract provides us with a tremendous opportunity to reach across BAE Systems and leverage our own internal research and development investments to help the DoD solve its most difficult mission challenges,” said Al Whitmore, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector. “We are excited to help the government leverage innovations in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and directed energy technologies to enhance the security and effectiveness of our warfighters across physical and digital domains.”
The contract, which supports the DOD Information Analysis Center’s program management office, aims to provide fast, flexible, low-cost solutions across technical disciplines.
