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.

The contract will see BAE Systems integrate mission equipment, combat systems, and computer programmes to support NAVSEA’s Surface Combat Systems Center. The systems are used for mission planning, testing and evaluation, research, and training. 

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.
