Under the con­tract, BAE Sys­tems will bid against one oth­er prime con­trac­tor for a series of task orders over the next five years, if all options are exercised. 

The com­pa­ny will sup­port the Navy’s Space and Naval War­fare Sys­tems Cen­ter (SCC) Atlantic with ser­vices to ensure effec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tions and elec­tron­ics net­works for vehi­cles used by the Navy, Marine Corps and oth­er joint forces. These ser­vices will include design­ing and engi­neer­ing, pro­to­typ­ing and test­ing, and sys­tems and soft­ware inte­gra­tion – crit­i­cal and com­plex tasks pri­or to the instal­la­tion of the net­works. The com­pa­ny will also help to main­tain the net­works and oth­er equip­ment once the vehi­cles are in use. 

“This is an impor­tant ser­vices con­tract for the U.S. mil­i­tary and a big win for us,” said Kris Busch, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of Mar­itime and Defense Sys­tems at BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions. “SCC Atlantic has been a val­ued cus­tomer of ours for more than 35 years, and our team stands ready to sup­port these new require­ments, when­ev­er and wher­ev­er needed.” 

The work will be con­duct­ed pri­mar­i­ly at BAE Sys­tems’ facil­i­ty in North Charleston, S.C. and at gov­ern­ment loca­tions. The com­pa­ny cur­rent­ly has approx­i­mate­ly 400 employ­ees in North Charleston, sup­port­ing SCC Atlantic and oth­er agencies. 

BAE Sys­tems Sup­port Solu­tions, based in Rockville, Md., pro­vides a range of prod­ucts and 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.
