US Navy Selects BAE Systems-led Team to Provide Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting System

SAN DIEGO, Cal­i­for­nia — A BAE Sys­tems-led team will part­ner with the mil­i­tary to devel­op the U.S. Navy’s pri­ma­ry intel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance, recon­nais­sance, and tar­get­ing (ISR&T) sys­tem. Under a $72 mil­lion con­tract from PEO C4I PMW 120, the team will enhance the cur­rent ver­sion of the Dis­trib­uted Com­mon Ground Sys­tem-Navy and con­tin­ue to tran­si­tion DCGS-N to an appli­ca­tion-based sys­tem through the DCGS-N Prime Mis­sion Prod­uct.

Mak­ing ISR&T data vis­i­ble, acces­si­ble, and under­stand­able across ser­vices, DCGS-N is part of the Depart­ment of Defense’s DCGS fam­i­ly of sys­tems and inte­grates ISR&T sup­port capa­bil­i­ties into a Web-enabled, net-cen­tric, and inter­op­er­a­ble enter­prise. DCGS-N uses com­mer­cial and gov­ern­ment off-the-shelf hard­ware, soft­ware, tools, and stan­dards to build a scal­able, mod­u­lar, and exten­si­ble mul­ti­source intel­li­gence sys­tem that is inter­op­er­a­ble with oth­er DCGS sys­tems.

DCGS-N is a high­ly suc­cess­ful pro­gram that has recent­ly achieved its Full Deploy­ment Deci­sion. We look for­ward to work­ing with BAE Sys­tems on near-term capa­bil­i­ty upgrades as we align towards the CANES archi­tec­ture,” said Capt. Robert E. Park­er, pro­gram man­ag­er for PMW 120.

Along with BAE Sys­tems, the team also con­sists of Gen­er­al Dynam­ics, Sun Microsys­tems, MTCSC, Space Dynam­ics Lab­o­ra­to­ry, InVisM, Argon ST, and Athena Con­sult­ing. As a DCGS-N Block 1 con­trac­tor, BAE Sys­tems par­tic­i­pat­ed in the system’s devel­op­ment and oper­a­tional eval­u­a­tion aboard the USS Har­ry S. Tru­man.

“An inte­grat­ed sys­tem will enable the Navy to main­tain infor­ma­tion dom­i­nance in any bat­tle space by accel­er­at­ing its abil­i­ty to exchange infor­ma­tion and data across mul­ti­ple secu­ri­ty domains, war­fare areas, envi­ron­ments, and the­aters,” said John Jar­man, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of defense sys­tems and solu­tions for BAE Sys­tems. “With this award, we will con­tin­ue work­ing with PEO C4I and the fleet to improve infor­ma­tion shar­ing with­in the Navy, oth­er ser­vices, and the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ties.”

BAE Sys­tems’ exten­sive expe­ri­ence in pro­vid­ing ISR&T sys­tems for the DoD, as well as enter­prise sys­tems devel­op­ment, inte­gra­tion and sys­tem instal­la­tion expe­ri­ence pro­vides the tech­nolo­gies and back­ground to help the Navy ful­ly real­ize the capa­bil­i­ties need­ed for DCGS-N to sup­port the fleet. BAE Sys­tems will per­form the devel­op­ment work at its new com­mand, con­trol, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, com­put­ing, and intel­li­gence devel­op­ment cen­ters in San Diego and Charleston, South Car­oli­na.
