Under the contract awarded in November, BAE Systems will support the rapid integration and sustainment of command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) systems for the Special Communications Mission Systems Division. 

“Those on the front lines need rapid integration of the latest technologies to ensure open, clear, secure, and reliable communications,” Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions, commented.

“Our C5ISR experts will provide custom solutions for military and commercial based communications platforms that will enable enhanced capabilities within the U.S. and abroad.” 

BAE Systems’ production and technical leads provide lifecycle sustainment, front-end production and systems engineering, and installation services at the customer’s Special Communication Rapid Integration Facility.

They deliver integrated components and systems for small and large craft, commercial and militarized vehicles, transit cases, radio and mobile communications, fixed base stations, command centers, and intelligence systems. The completed systems are supplied to the Navy, Special Operations Forces, the Department of Homeland Security, and other Department of Defense and non-defense agencies. 

In late October 2021, the company also received a $478 million five-year systems engineering and integration support services contract to continue supporting the US Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) office.

The SSP oversees the strategic weapons system and attack weapons system on-board current US Ohio and UK Vanguard-class submarines, as well as on future US Columbia and UK Dreadnought-class submarines.
