The US Navy has hired BAE Systems to integrate and sustain critical communications systems across its military vehicles and command centres.

Under two single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts, BAE Systems will support command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) systems on behalf of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD). Together, these awards have a potential value of over $150 million.

The first award, LCS CONUS, is a five-year contract to provide life cycle sustainment across military and commercial based communications platforms within the US and overseas. These systems are used by the US Navy, Special Operations Forces, Homeland Security, and other Department of Defense (DoD) and non-defense agencies. The IDIQ contract has a maximum value of $83 million.

“Our engineers specialise in providing custom, tailor-made C5ISR solutions to help close communications capability gaps for the US military,” said Mark Keeler, Vice President and General Manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “BAE Systems takes pride in keeping the lines of communication open for those on the front lines of national security.”

BAE Systems has also secured a place on a five-year IDIQ to provide rapid integration and production services for C5ISR systems aboard small and large militarized vehicles and air platforms. Much of the work will take place within NAWCAD’s Special Communications Mission Solutions Division at St Inigoes, Maryland – also known as the Special Communications Rapid Integration Facility (SCRIF).

Remaining work will take place in Jacksonville, Florida, providing direct support to the local Fleet Readiness Center (FRC). BAE Systems will be tasked with supporting mobile, fixed-base stations, various fixed and rotary wing air platforms, and large command centers deployed around the world. The IDIQ contract has a maximum value of $68 million.
