BAE Systems was one of three contractors awarded the opportunity to bid on future integration, engineering, assembly, testing, and installation focused task orders awarded throughout an  eight-year ordering period. The work will be performed to enhance a variety of distributed systems that provide network capabilities, communications, command and control, intelligence, and non-tactical data management.
 
“As a leading systems integrator, we continuously seek to broaden our support to the US Navy to advance its C5ISR capabilities,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “We are working with our defense customers to innovate our approach to systems development to better meet their ever evolving mission requirements in alignment with construction and modernisation priorities.”
 
A majority of the work awarded will take place near the US Navy’s Test and Integration Facility Complex, alternatively known as the C4I-System Innovation Facility, located at Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic in Charleston, SC. Additional work is slated for shipyards in Pascagoula, MS; Newport News, VA; and Norfolk, VA.
