C4ISR systems contract win for Serco

31st July 2012 - 09:04 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Serco has announced that it has been awarded a new contract to support the Department of Defence Joint Programme Office with upgrading Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) equipment and systems on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The fifteen month contract, worth $73 million if options are exercised, was announced 30 July 2012.

The contract will see Serco enhance the integrated communication systems on US Air Force (USAF), US Army, US Marine Corp (USMC), and US Navy MRAP vehicles used by the warfighters to stay connected through the interoperability of ground-based and airborne equipment. The company said that work will be carried out by teams deployed to bases and camps throughout Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Qatar to analyze, install, and test the systems on-site, allowing the vehicles to be used immediately after completion.

Serco will also provide sustainment and maintenance support services to keep the C4ISR systems operational.

The contract was awarded under the US Navy's SPAWAR Global C4ISR Installation ID/IQ contract vehicle.
