BAE Systems has been awarded a five-year, $90 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to modernize and maintain C5ISR systems embedded within vehicles, watercraft, and specialized communications platforms.

C5ISR includes command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems that are integrated and networked to improve the situational awareness of their military operators and decision makers.

“Technology is constantly evolving and the mission needs of our customers can change. As systems integrators, we are providing agile engineering, testing, and field support to help our military customers adapt and maintain a tactical edge,” Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business, said.

According to BAE Systems, work on the program will be performed in St. Inigoes, Maryland; Little Creek, Virginia; and Fayetteville, North Carolina.

The company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains.
