The company received two single-award IDIQ contracts that support the rapid integration and sustainment of C5ISR systems for the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.

The first award, LCS CONUS, is a five-year contract to provide life cycle sustainment across military and commercial based communications platforms within the US and abroad. These systems are used by navy, Special Operations Forces, Homeland Security, and other Department of Defense and non-defence agencies. The IDIQ contract has a maximum ceiling value of $83 million.

Under the second five-year IDIQ contract, BAE Systems will provide rapid integration and production services for C5ISR systems on-board small and large militarised vehicles and air platforms. BAE Systems' work will include supporting mobile, fixed-base stations, various fixed and rotary wing air platforms, and large command centres deployed around the world. The contract has a maximum ceiling estimated at $68 million.
