BAE Systems secures $52M contract from US Navy
The US Navy has awarded BAE Systems a five-year contract worth $52 million (€47.33 million) to provide essential maintenance and testing support for various air traffic control and landing systems.
These systems provide Navy pilots with electronic guidance to help them land safely on the ground and at sea, in all weather conditions.
Under the new contract, the company will test, evaluate, and certify Navy aircraft landing systems and subsystems. The company will also provide the engineering and technical expertise to overhaul and restore the Navy’s systems and equipment.
DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector, said: “For more than 40 years, our team of engineering professionals has ensured the reliability of the Navy’s flight systems to enhance the safety of its pilots.”
The contract work will continue to be performed primarily at Navy facilities in St. Inigoes, Maryland (USA).
