BAE Systems to Provide Engineering and Technical Services Under $16 Billion U.S. Army Contract

ROCKVILLE, Mary­land — BAE Sys­tems has been approved to pro­vide engi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to the U.S. Army and oth­er fed­er­al cus­tomers under a $16.4 bil­lion gov­ern­ment-wide con­tract called Rapid Response — 3rd Gen­er­a­tion (R2-3G). The com­pa­ny is eli­gi­ble to bid on a range of task orders dur­ing the 10-year life of the con­tract. Ser­vices offered will include sys­tems engi­neer­ing and inte­gra­tion, research and devel­op­ment, stud­ies and analy­sis, test and eval­u­a­tion, and logis­tics sup­port.

The selec­tion of BAE Sys­tems to com­pete for this work demon­strates how the company’s cus­tomer sup­port and ser­vice capa­bil­i­ties are effec­tive­ly meet­ing the cur­rent and future require­ments of the mil­i­tary.

“The R2-3G con­tract is a valu­able tool for agen­cies with urgent needs for ser­vices,” said Chuck Thomas, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of sys­tems engi­neer­ing solu­tions at BAE Sys­tems. “We have a strong record of per­for­mance, and we pro­vide a diverse set of capa­bil­i­ties, any­where in the prod­uct life cycle and any­where in the world.”

R2-3G is an indef­i­nite delivery/indefinite quan­ti­ty con­tract award­ed by the Army’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tions-Elec­tron­ics Life Cycle Man­age­ment Com­mand. The office spe­cial­izes in Com­mand, Con­trol, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Com­put­ers, Intel­li­gence, Sur­veil­lance, and Recon­nais­sance sup­port — known as C4ISR.

BAE Sys­tems will pro­vide R2-3G ser­vices at mul­ti­ple gov­ern­ment sites and man­age the work at facil­i­ties in Mon­mouth, New Jer­sey; Huntsville, Alaba­ma; and Aberdeen and Rockville, Mary­land.
