BAE Systems will continue supporting US Air Force’s (USAF) 21st Space Wing for the maintenance of the Solid State Phased Radar System (SSPARS).
The U.S. Air Force awarded a year on extension of the original contract in 2006 through the completion of the contract in 2018 is valued at $550 million. The modification award is valued at $46 million, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
“Providing missile defense and space surveillance for the United States, Canada, and our allies is a very important mission,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector.
BAE Systems will maintain around-the-clock operations and maintenance support at each SSPARS site location. SSPARS is comprised of five radar sites in the Northern Hemisphere: Beale Air Force Base, California; Cape Cod Air Force Station, Massachusetts; Clear Air Force Station, Alaska; Royal Air Force Fylingdales, United Kingdom; and Thule Air Base, Greenland.
These sites provide the US Air Force with capabilities such as sea‐launched ballistic missile warning; ballistic missile early warning and space surveillance; ground‐based midcourse defense programs; maintenance for military satellite communications systems; communications-electronic systems; and precision measurement equipment calibration and maintenance.
