As one of several companies involved, BAE Systems will pursue future orders as part of this five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract.

Work under the contract will help SPAWAR’s Joint Warfare Support Division to field, adapt, and optimize a variety of mission critical surveillance and sensor systems. Services will include systems integration, test and evaluation, training, certification, maintenance, life-cycle management, and technical field service support. The total value of all orders to be awarded over the life of the IDIQ is estimated at $180 million.

“We will play an important role in delivering reliable, real-time intelligence solutions to our frontline forces to ensure their safety and defend against the threats that impede mission success,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of Integrated Electronics and Warfare Systems at BAE Systems.
