BAE Systems will provide lifecycle, engineering, and sustainment support to ensure precision approaches as part of a new $65.7m contract.
Under this new contract, BAE Systems will provide sustainment and engineering services for air traffic control platforms, similar to the expeditionary ATC radar unit shown above being carried by a Marine Corps Humvee.
“BAE Systems will provide lifecycle, engineering, and sustainment support to ensure precision approaches and further enhance the safety of America’s warfighters.
The U.S. Navy selected BAE Systems for a five-year $65.7 million single-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract for air traffic control (ATC) platform sustainment and engineering services.
The company will continue to utilize its engineering, technical, and operational expertise to develop, produce, equip, test, evaluate, sustain, and update key expeditionary ATC aviation systems for the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division’s (NAWCAD) Webster Outlying Field (WOLF).”
“With this win, BAE Systems will provide expeditionary forces with the capability to quickly establish an airfield with the radar and communications systems to safely recover and launch aircraft,” said Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business.
“We serve as the automation expert and technical coordinator, responsible for development and improvement of real-time ATC computer systems. Our radar technicians deploy around the world to support the warfighter; their work is resulting in quicker turnover to the end user, improved hardware reliability, and more accurate installation and precision in the field.”
