BAE Systems has been selected for the delivery of equipment and support services for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SPAWAR) in order to help identify and track potential threats.

BAE Systems is one among several companies that have been selected to pursue future orders as part of the navy’s current indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which is slated to continue for five years.

The total combined value of all orders awarded by the US Navy over the contract’s lifetime is estimated to be around $180m.

"We will play an important role in delivering reliable, real-time intelligence solutions to our frontline forces to ensure their safety and defend against the threats that impede mission success."

The project is intended to enable SPAWAR’s Joint Warfare Support Division to deploy, adapt and optimise a wide range of mission-critical surveillance and sensor systems.

BAE Systems Integrated Electronics and Warfare Systems vice-president and general manager Mark Keeler said: “We will play an important role in delivering reliable, real-time intelligence solutions to our frontline forces to ensure their safety and defend against the threats that impede mission success.”

The company offers a large variety of new solutions and services, including  intelligence analysis, cyber operations, information technology (IT), systems development, systems integration, and operations and maintenance, which are designed to allow different militaries and governments to identify, address and combat threats.

BAE Systems also provides support for critical national security missions in order to help protect both the country and its armed forces personnel.

The US SPAWAR is a Department of the Navy organisation that offers uninterrupted vigilance, fail-safe cybersecurity, adaptive response and engineering excellence to the country by providing new, secure and integrated solutions for several naval, joint and national agencies.
