The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems a 5-year, $90 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to modernize and maintain Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance systems.

These C5ISR systems are embedded within naval vehicles, watercraft and specialized communications platforms, and are integrated and networked to improve situational awareness of military operators.

“Technology is constantly evolving and the mission needs of our customers can change. As systems integrators, we are providing agile engineering, testing, and field support to help our military customers adapt and maintain a tactical edge,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business.

The program will be implemented in St. Inigoes, Maryland; Little Creek, Virginia; and Fayetteville, North Carolina.

This isn’t the company’s introduction to naval support work. In fact, BAE Systems has 25 years of experience supporting Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division’s Special Communications Mission Solutions Division with mobile deployable systems.
