The US Navy has awarded BAE Systems a five-year, $90 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to modernise and maintain C5ISR systems embedded within vehicles, watercraft, and specialised communications platforms.

C5ISR includes command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems that are integrated and networked to improve the situational awareness of their military operators and decision makers.
 
"Technology is constantly evolving and the mission needs of our customers can change," said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems' Integrated Defense Solutions business. "As systems integrators, we are providing agile engineering, testing, and field support to help our military customers adapt and maintain a tactical edge."
 
BAE Systems has been supporting Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division’s Special Communications Mission Solutions Division with mobile deployable systems for more than 25 years. Work on this programme will be performed in St. Inigoes, Maryland; Little Creek, Virginia; and Fayetteville, North Carolina.
