The US Navy’s Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) has awarded BAE Systems, Inc. a prime position on a $212 million contract to integrate and sustain its critical communication systems.

The company will design, acquire, integrate, and test radio systems for newly constructed Guided Missile Destroyers (DDG) and other US Navy and US Coast Guard ships.
 
Additionally, the company was awarded a separate $104.7 million contract by NAWCAD to provide engineering and technical services to support production, lifetime-support, and in-service engineering for the radio communications C5ISR (command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) systems aboard US Navy surface combatants and at associated shore sites. The work will be focused primarily on the CG 47 Class and DDG 51 Class AEGIS ships.
 
“Maintaining reliable lines of communication and situational awareness for those at the forefront of national security is a mission-critical priority for BAE Systems and our customers,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “We’re proud to continue supporting the integration of combat systems and solutions for the US Navy as they defend against advanced air, surface and subsurface threats.”
 
BAE Systems has been a trusted partner to the US Navy for over 45 years, with decades of experience working to develop next-generation solutions for critical shipboard systems. The company’s electronics experts have experience providing custom, tailor-made solutions to help close communications capability gaps for the US military, including existing work with US Navy C5ISR capability modernisation.
