Integrating the Navy’s Many Communications Systems

BAE Systems has been contracted by the U.S. Navy for engineering, maintenance, and enhanced integration of C5ISR systems used in the U.S. and around the world.

BAE Systems has earned positions on two single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts for the U.S. Navy potentially worth more than $150 million. The IDIQ contracts are for rapid integration and sustainment of command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) systems for the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD).

The first contract, with a maximum ceiling value of $83 million, is a five-year arrangement to provide life-cycle sustainment across military and commercial based communications platforms within the U.S. and abroad. “Our engineers specialize in providing custom, tailor-made C5ISR solutions to help close communications capability gaps for the U.S. military,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “BAE Systems takes pride in keeping the lines of communication open for those on the front lines of national security.”

The second contract also has a five-year duration and is worth around $68 million. It provides rapid integration and production services for C5ISR systems on-board small and large militarized vehicles and air platforms. Most of the work will take place within NAWCAD’s Special Communications Mission Solutions Division’s production facility at St. Inigoes, Md., a facility known as the Special Communications Rapid Integration Facility (SCRIF).
