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.
