BAE Systems will enhance operations on new build US Navy aircraft carriers, after being awarded a prime contractor position on a new IDIQ contract.

The work relates to maritime operations and flight safety systems aboard new construction aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious ships, to include refuelling and complex overhaul ships.

The company will bid on future integration, engineering, assembly, testing, and installation focused task orders awarded throughout an eight-year ordering period. The work will be performed to enhance a variety of distributed systems that provide network capabilities, communications, command and control, intelligence, and non-tactical data management.

Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business, said: ‘As a leading systems integrator, we continuously seek to broaden our support to the US Navy to advance its C5ISR capabilities.

‘We are working with our defence customers to innovate our approach to systems development to better meet their ever evolving mission requirements in alignment with construction and modernisation priorities.’
