BAE Systems to Support U.S. Marine Corps Air Traffic Control Under $30 Million Contract

ROCKVILLE, Mary­land — BAE Sys­tems will pro­vide engi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to sup­port the U.S. Marine Corps’ air traf­fic con­trol sys­tems under a readi­ness and sus­tain­ment con­tract worth up to $30 mil­lion. The con­tract was award­ed by the Naval Air War­fare Center’s Air­craft Divi­sion (NAWC-AD), based at St. Ini­goes, Mary­land, which BAE Sys­tems has sup­port­ed for three decades. 

The com­pa­ny will per­form a range of ser­vices, includ­ing sys­tems design and analy­sis, on-site tech­ni­cal assis­tance, and train­ing. The sys­tems encom­pass expe­di­tionary equip­ment to con­trol future and field­ed air traf­fic nav­i­ga­tion, inte­gra­tion, and coor­di­na­tion, as well as pre­ci­sion radars. 

“These sys­tems are vital to ensur­ing Marine Corps readi­ness,” said Richard Ander­son, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er for inte­grat­ed tech­ni­cal solu­tions at BAE Sys­tems. “We’ve sup­port­ed NAWC-AD for more than 30 years, and we con­tin­ue to make sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to its crit­i­cal role as a cen­ter for engi­neer­ing excellence.” 

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 $30 mil­lion. The work will be per­formed at the Naval Air Sta­tion at Pax Riv­er, Mary­land and at oth­er U.S. mil­i­tary bases around the world.
