BAE Secures $137M Navy C5ISR Sustainment Contract
The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems a potential five-year, $137 million contract for C5ISR lifecycle management and sustainment.
Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions, said the company has the expertise, personnel and resources to allow it to secure the contract.
According to Hand, BAE’s knowledge in C5ISR will improve warfighter capabilities by providing systems and increased capabilities to solve problems. It will also allow military customers to maintain a tactical edge, Hand shared.
In addition to C5ISR lifecycle management and sustainment, the defense contractor will train military personnel on how to operate the systems. The company will also provide post-fielding support and sustainment, such as technical upgrade implementation, in-service engineering and logistical support. The contract was awarded in November, BAE said.
According to the company, C5ISR systems improve situational awareness. Systems are fielded to military sites within and outside the U.S., and servicemen train on how to use the offerings.
BAE Systems offers communications, weapons systems, vehicle platforms and navigation systems to customers operating in all domains from sea to space and cyber. It is headquartered in Farnborough, U.K., and has multiple offices in the U.S. and other locations across the globe.
