BAE to continue US Navy ATC support
The US Navy has awarded a five-year contract to BAE Systems to continue providing sustainment and testing support for its air traffic control (ATC) and landing systems. The company announced the contract, worth up to $52 million, on 17 October.
The contract covers various ATC systems that provide electronic guidance to naval pilots to help them land safely at sea and on the ground in all weather conditions.
BAE Systems will test, evaluate and certify the naval ATC and landing systems and subsystems, and will provide engineering and technical expertise for overhauling and restoring the equipment and systems.
The contract work will continue to be performed largely at naval facilities in St. Inigoes, Maryland.
