The US Navy has awarded $76 million contract to BAE Systems to develop vital communications and electronics for the Naval Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD).
The company will support the rapid design, development, fabrication, customization, and life-cycle maintenance of new and existing communication and electronic platforms for NAWCAD.
BAE Systems will also support the testing, evaluation, installation, integration, and certification of mission equipment and systems for NAWCAD’s Special Communications Mission Solutions Division, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
This equipment is designed and developed by NAWCAD and allows customers to communicate securely. It is widely used by the Navy, as well as the US Army, US Air Force, Joint Special Operations Forces, and other US Department of Defense and federal government agencies.
“We perform expert, integrated engineering and sustainment support services that meet the development demands of the Navy,” said Mark Keeler, acting president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector.
