McLean, VA -(Ammoland.com)- The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command has awarded BAE Systems a two-year contract to provide hardware, software, and systems integration support for the Battlespace Command and Control Center.
The initial award is valued at $11.8 million with the total value of the two-year contract estimated at $23 million. Under the contract, BAE Systems will perform upgrades to mobile training suites and provide systems and network administration support to the Non-Organic Radar Access program.
The work will minimize downtime for critical systems and enhance the ability of warfighters to analyze and manage the increasing amounts of data, while shortening the processing time for critical decision making.
“Our experts are helping U.S. forces quickly identify ground, air, space, and undersea threats to national security,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of Integrated Electronics and Warfare Systems at BAE Systems. “We’re enhancing system readiness and increasing the warfighter’s ability to process information that’s critical to protecting our men and women in uniform.”
The award was received under the Concepts and Operations for Space and Missile Defense Integration Capabilities indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract. BAE Systems has held the contract since its inception in 2006.
