BAE Systems, a systems integrator firm supporting militaries, governments, and U.S. intelligence community members across the globe, announced it has won a five-year $94 M contract from the U.S. Navy.
The company will provide engineering, test, and evaluation support for systems aboard manned and unmanned airborne platforms, similar to the PHASA-35 high altitude High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) vehicle, the company said.
Under this deal, BAE Systems will integrate its advanced technology capabilities such as artificial intelligence and autonomy to the Airborne Systems Integration Division.
BAE Systems’ ADAMS architecture provides a digital environment for systems engineering across multidisciplinary, multi-organization teams and stakeholders.
The company will also use capabilities such as digital engineering to create the digital thread that provides full design traceability to requirements, improved collaboration, and a digital repository for the Airborne Systems Integration Division.
Simultaneously BAE Systems also won contracts worth more than $30 million to produce and integrate a mission-critical information warfare platform for U.S Navy vessels.
The platform will help sailors execute their missions and remain connected while at sea.
The $94M contract was awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division’s (NAWCAD) Webster Outlying Field (WOLF) whereas the $30M contract consists of two task orders for Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Services (CANES) for two Arleigh Burke class destroyers, a Virginia class submarine, and two Blue Ridge class command ships.
