BAE Systems announces NAVSEA award
BAE Systems will provide management, engineering, maintenance, and IT support services for the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) at Wallops Island, Virginia, under a five-year, $86 million contract announced on 21 November.

DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ intelligence and security sector, said: ‘We are ensuring the interoperability of deployed systems and integrating next-generation technologies for use in testing and exercises at sea.
‘This is critical work that is supporting the navy’s strategy to provide the fleet with the advanced capabilities it needs in an increasingly complex maritime environment.’
