BAE Secures $154M Navy Contract for Continued C5ISR Support
The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems a potential five-year, $154 million contract to continue supporting the Naval Air Warfare Center Webster Outlying Field.
The contract is indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity in nature and will require BAE to support rapid command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance integration and sustainment at the Special Communications Mission Systems Division. Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions, said its personnel will provide solutions for military and commercial communications platforms that will improve servicemen’s capabilities within and outside the U.S. The contract was awarded in November, BAE said Tuesday.

NAWCAD 4.11 provides rapid development systems engineering, combat integration and identification systems, ship and air integrated warfare and other communications services for air-based platforms. NAWCAD UASTD supports research, experimentation, development and test and evaluation of all Navy and Marine Corps tactical UAS.
