BAE Systems was one of three contractors awarded the opportunity to bid on future integration, engineering, assembly, testing, and installation focused task orders awarded throughout an  eight-year ordering period.

“We are working with our defense customers to innovate our approach to systems development to better meet their ever evolving mission requirements in alignment with construction and modernisation priorities.”
