BAE Systems Receives Contract to Support Tomahawk Missile Control System

ROCKVILLE, Mary­land — BAE Sys­tems will pro­vide tech­ni­cal ser­vices to main­tain the weapon con­trol sys­tem for the Tom­a­hawk cruise mis­sile pro­gram under a U.S. Navy con­tract worth as much as $14.8 mil­lion. The con­tract was award­ed by the Naval Sur­face War­fare Cen­ter at Dahlgren, Vir­ginia, which the com­pa­ny has sup­port­ed for more than 25 years.

“This con­tract will help ensure readi­ness and sus­tain­ment of a vital weapon sys­tem for the Navy,” said Steve Metz, vice pres­i­dent of mar­itime pro­grams at BAE Sys­tems. “It also con­tin­ues our strong his­to­ry of per­for­mance on the Tom­a­hawk pro­gram.”

The com­pa­ny will per­form a range of ser­vices, such as test­ing and eval­u­a­tion, analy­sis, and tech­ni­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion. These ser­vices will sup­port the Navy’s com­mand and con­trol sys­tems that han­dle the prepa­ra­tion, test, and launch of Tom­a­hawk mis­siles from sur­face ships.

The con­tract includes an ini­tial one-year term plus four option years. If all of the options are exer­cised, the total val­ue could reach approx­i­mate­ly $14.8 mil­lion. The work will be con­duct­ed pri­mar­i­ly at Navy facil­i­ties in Dahlgren and man­aged at BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions offices in near­by King George and Stafford, Vir­ginia.
