BAE Systems has landed a five-year contract, $137 million from the U.S. Navy to aid defense technologies and training.
The contract was awarded back in Nov. 2021 to provide management and sustainment of combat systems such as C5ISR, the Farnborough, United Kingdom-based arms and security company said Wednesday.
C5ISR, for which BAE will provide training, are systems implemented to strengthen decision making and situational awareness for military operators.
“Our deep C5ISR sustainment experience, skilled workforce, and in-place resources positioned us well to recompete for this important work,” said Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions.
Hand went on to say that training in C5ISR will instill a “tactical edge” in personnel and enable its users to solve difficult problems in combat situations.
Built into the contract will be post-fielding efforts from BAE Systems in order to maintain the viability of the technology. This will mean upgrades, cyber hardening and logistical support to personnel on-site at U.S. government facilities.
Recently, in September 2021, BAE Systems was awarded a $478 million contract by the U.S. Navy to continue its support of the
U.S. Navy’s Strategic Systems Program office. A month later, in October 2021, BAE won a $65.8 million contract from the U.S. Navy to offer precision approach and landing systems onboard aircraft carriers.
