BAE Systems to enhance US Navy's connectivity

Posted 16 January 2019 · Add Comment

BAE Systems will assist the US Navy in maintaining and operating multiple electronic, communication and computing platforms under a five-year, $79.8 million contract.



The programme, which supports the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station, Pacific, will enable BAE Systems to continue providing 24/7 operations and maintenance support for afloat and ashore command, control, communications, computer and intelligence systems.
 
“We are maintaining ship-to-shore, shore-to-aircraft, and shore-to-shore long-range communications systems,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “Our work is enabling naval, joint, agency, and coalition forces to effectively communicate and operate across the Pacific and Indian Oceans.”
 
Through this contract, BAE Systems engineers will also continue servicing the US Navy’s Mobile User Objective System, a narrowband military communications satellite system that offers enhanced and secure communications, including voice, video, and data for all branches of the Department of Defense and other federal agencies.
 
A majority of the contract work will take place in Oahu, Hawaii, with additional work performed in Geraldton, Australia.
