BAE Systems has been awarded a five-year Systems Engineering and Integration Support Services contract to continue supporting the U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) office

The firm say here that they have been awarded a five-year Systems Engineering and Integration Support Services contract to continue supporting the U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) office.

The contract, worth up to $478 million, was awarded in September 2021.

“We are proud to continue providing full system-level lifecycle capabilities to SSP that will help advance their digital engineering strategy to ensure the readiness of the Navy’s strategic missions,” said Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions.

“BAE Systems brings extensive systems integration expertise to a wide range of defense initiatives that support two-legs of the nation’s nuclear triad.”

The SSP oversees the Strategic Weapons System and Attack Weapons System on-board current U.S. Ohio and U.K. Vanguard class submarines, as well as on future U.S. Columbia and U.K. Dreadnought class submarines.

As an independent weapon system integrator, BAE Systems say it uses model-based and digital engineering approaches that “enable customers like the U.S. Navy to optimise cost, schedule, and performance for highly complex weapon systems”.

Full circle on Astute, BAE had to get General Dynamics Electric Boat in to advise them on Shipyard logistics and supply chain management as the shipyard hadnt built a submarine in a decade and now BAE is being brought in to advise the US on weapons integration for Columbia and Virginia class submarines as their shipyards are struggling to meet production schedules.
