BAE Systems to Install Automated Entry Systems for U.S. Army

ROCKVILLE, Mary­land — BAE Sys­tems has received a U.S. Army con­tract worth up to $95 mil­lion to install and main­tain auto­mat­ed secu­ri­ty sys­tems to con­trol access to Army bases and oth­er instal­la­tions. This award expands the company’s work in sup­port­ing phys­i­cal secu­ri­ty at gov­ern­ment sites.

The auto­mat­ed instal­la­tion entry sys­tems use soft­ware and hard­ware to ver­i­fy infor­ma­tion on indi­vid­u­als and match that infor­ma­tion to data on reg­is­tered vehi­cles. The com­pa­ny will install the sys­tems at mul­ti­ple Army sites in the Unit­ed States and the net­work will be designed to trans­fer infor­ma­tion across those sites. 

BAE Sys­tems cur­rent­ly pro­vides sim­i­lar sys­tems for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­ri­ty, and oth­ers in secu­ri­ty-crit­i­cal environments. 

“These sys­tems are vital to advanc­ing phys­i­cal secu­ri­ty for the Army,” said Richard Ander­son, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er for inte­grat­ed tech­ni­cal solu­tions at BAE Sys­tems. “They will enable guards to quick­ly per­mit or deny entry to dri­vers based on threat lev­els. They will also low­er over­all secu­ri­ty costs by reduc­ing guard requirements.” 

The con­tract includes an ini­tial two-year award plus one option year that, if exer­cised, could extend its val­ue to $95 mil­lion. Work will be per­formed pri­mar­i­ly at BAE Sys­tems oper­a­tions in North Charleston, South Carolina.
