Navy Extends BAE Systems Air Traffic Control, Landing Systems Support Contract

The U.S. Navy is ensuring the readiness of its aircraft fleet by extending a vital contract.

On Wednesday, BAE Systems announced that it has received a five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth $92 million from the U.S. Navy.

The follow-up contract will see the defense contractor continue to supply fleet services, operational software development and maintenance and technical support to air traffic control and landing systems used by the Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command, and other services, BAE Systems said.  

The defense contractor has been working with various service branches to improve their technologies and solutions. In July, it secured a $15 million contract for the AN/UPX-50(C) Digital Interrogator modernization. The solution provides for easy identification of friend or foe in air defense, weapon systems and range instrumentation.

It also partnered with the U.S. Army in August to modernize an additional number of Bradley A4 vehicles used by the Armored Brigade Combat Teams. The contract involves upgrading the M2A2 Operation Desert Storm – Situational Awareness variant units to the A4.
