The contract vehicle is intended to be used by naval, joint and national agencies seeking lifecycle service support for command, control, communications, computers, and combat systems. Additional task orders may be awarded to enhance the capabilities and security of various signals intelligence, imagery intelligence, electronic warfare, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems.
"This award creates new opportunities for us to showcase our expertise in cyber threat exploitation and analysis, computer network defense, and security-focused systems engineering," said Kris Busch, vice president of BAE Systems' Integrated Defense Solutions business. "We are also introducing new advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning solutions that will further improve our nation’s ability to defend against future land, sea, air, space, cyber, and electromagnetic warfare threats."
The award may also be used to develop, test, produce, and field next-generation autonomous and unmanned missions systems. BAE Systems is one of ten companies selected to compete for future task orders awarded under the IDIQ, which is being managed by Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic. The ceiling value for all future task orders awarded under the contract is $898 million.
