Leidos has selected DCNS as part of a multinational consortium to participate in the system engineering and the integration of the NATO Ballistic Missile Defence.
The contract has a four-year base period of performance, two one-year options plus one eight-month option, and a total contract value of $77 million if all options are exercised, DCNS announced in its press release on Friday.
NATO's goal is to integrate existing and future national weapon systems, sensors, command and control systems with the NATO Battle Management Command Control Communications and Intelligence system to provide an active defence for the protection of the alliance territory and populations, as well as deployed military forces and critical assets, against a large spectrum of ballistic missiles threats.
The multinational team will assist in this effort by defining, specifying, testing and verifying the proposed NATO Ballistic Missile Defence architectures and requirements using an integration test bed that will be upgraded and operated under the contract.
“DCNS is the prime contractor for the FREMM Frigates - the most technologically advanced combat ships on the market - two of which will be dedicated to Air and Missile defence for the French Navy, and for the Horizon Frigates Combat Management System maintenance. These frigates are strong candidates to contribute to the future NATO BMD architectures.” said Pierre Legros, Senior Vice President, Programmes.
“This success of DCNS clearly demonstrates the company’s continued commitment towards the most powerful technological solutions supporting the most advanced defence capabilities,” Legros added.
