BAE wins Spawar deal

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (Spawar) awarded BAE Systems a contract worth up to $54.5 million for support services for ship command and control for Spawar's office in Charleston, S.C.

Under the terms of the contract, which was announced Aug. 11, BAE will provide engineering and technology support services for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence systems, and shipboard testing for radio communications.

The $17.4 million contract lasts until August 2004 and includes options that, if exercised, would bring its total value to $54.5 million over the next three years.

BAE designs and builds radio systems for ships.

"Our efforts are focused on designing in the most recent technology that the Navy has to offer," said Paula Sandin, a spokeswoman for BAE. "This includes designing in technological advancements associated with the transmission and reception of [radio frequency] energy, its processing and control, monitoring, management, and transfer of associated tactical and administrative information."
