BAE Systems has announced that they have received a $132 million US Navy task order to provide C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) technical services for military operations around the world. According to a statement released by the company on 17 November 2011, the company will conduct maintenance, upgrades, logistics, training and sustainment support for various equipment, sensors and systems. These services will be performed on military structures, vehicles, ships and small boats.

BAE Systems has been working with the Navy’s Special Communications Requirements Division for more than 25 years. According to the company, employees often deploy overseas and are embedded with Special Operations Forces or other military units to ensure their readiness. To date, about 90 BAE Systems employees have served these missions, many volunteering for multiple deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations.

The task order is a three year contract under Seaport-e, and includes a one-year base term plus two option years. If all of the options are exercised, the total value could reach approximately $132 million. The work will be conducted at government sites around the world and managed at BAE Systems offices in Southern Maryland and Chesapeake, Va.
