BAE Systems Receives $132 Million U.S. Navy Award to Provide C4ISR Support for Military Operations Overseas

ST. INIGOES, Mary­land – BAE Sys­tems has received a $132 mil­lion U.S. Navy task order to pro­vide C4ISR (Com­mand, Con­trol, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Com­put­ers, Intel­li­gence, Sur­veil­lance and Recon­nais­sance) tech­ni­cal ser­vices for mil­i­tary oper­a­tions around the world. The com­pa­ny will con­duct main­te­nance, upgrades, logis­tics, train­ing and sus­tain­ment sup­port for var­i­ous equip­ment, sen­sors and sys­tems. These ser­vices will be per­formed on mil­i­tary struc­tures, vehi­cles, ships and small boats.

The award, from the Navy’s Spe­cial Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Require­ments Divi­sion, is a con­tin­u­a­tion of work BAE Sys­tems has been per­form­ing for more than 25 years. In many cas­es, employ­ees deploy over­seas and are embed­ded with Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Forces or oth­er mil­i­tary units to ensure their readi­ness. To date, about 90 BAE Sys­tems employ­ees have served these mis­sions, many vol­un­teer­ing for mul­ti­ple deploy­ments to Iraq, Afghanistan and oth­er loca­tions.

“After 25 years, we are proud to have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tin­ue pro­vid­ing these crit­i­cal ser­vices across the globe,” said Dave Herr, pres­i­dent of BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions. “The strong rela­tion­ship we have with our cus­tomer allows our entire team to meet and exceed the spe­cial­ized C4ISR needs of the military’s men and women in the field.”

The three-year task order under the Sea­port-e con­tract includes a one-year base term plus two option years. If all of the options are exer­cised, the total val­ue could reach approx­i­mate­ly $132 mil­lion. The work will be con­duct­ed at gov­ern­ment sites around the world and man­aged at BAE Sys­tems offices in South­ern Mary­land and Chesa­peake, Va.

BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions, based in Rockville, Md., pro­vides a range of ser­vices to meet needs in readi­ness and sus­tain­ment and oper­a­tional sup­port across the land, avi­a­tion, mar­itime and C4ISR domains, sup­port­ing the U.S. Depart­ment of Defense and fed­er­al agen­cies. Sup­port Solu­tions is also a lead­ing non-nuclear ship repair, mod­ern­iza­tion and con­ver­sion com­pa­ny, serv­ing the U.S. Navy and oth­er mar­itime cus­tomers.
