Serco has secured a new task order from the US Navy to support the Space and Naval Systems Warfare Systems Center Atlantic.

Valued at $13m, the nine-month contract will see Serco using command, control, and communication, as well as computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) expertise to deliver installation, testing, and certification services.

Serco chairman and CEO Dan Allen said: "Securing this contract enhances Serco's C4ISR capabilities and supports our mission to provide service delivery excellence.

"We have a long-standing relationship with the US Navy and look forward to supporting these joint warfighter enhancements."

Serco will also remove existing C4ISR systems and install new systems.

"Securing this contract enhances Serco's C4ISR capabilities and supports our mission to provide service delivery excellence."

Currently, Serco offers shipboard IT modernisation support for the navy's consolidated afloat network enterprise services (CANES) systems, which upgrade local area network (LAN) systems aboard naval ships.

The CANES system also minimises infrastructure, while increasing reliability and interoperability to meet current and projected troop needs.

In addition to its support for CANES systems, the company offers services to other key communications, intelligence, and tactical systems of the US Navy.

In April, Serco secured a single-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity price fighters contract to deliver cost, price, and engineering analyses for the US Navy.

Under this $20m contract, Serco is responsible to continue delivering engineering-based cost analysis for the navy, army, air force, and DoD as part of efforts to negotiate lower prices on weapons systems and parts.
