BAE Systems wins contract to deliver and manage secure networks across essential government agencies

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has awarded BAE Systems a five-year $85 million contract to continue to develop, deploy, modernize, and maintain cross-domain solutions that allow for secure transfer of sensitive information between government networks.

The work on the contract will enable the secure exchange of data including streaming video, images and audio to enhance mission collaboration. BAE Systems will also provide research, development, and evaluation of new technologies, including the integration of innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

“As the military cyberspace battlefield expands, we understand how critical it is that secure, innovative intelligence solutions are available to warfighting commands and combat support agencies to communicate safety and effectively,” said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business.
