Rockville MD (SPX) Dec 07, 2005
BAE Systems has been awarded a $62.5 million contract from the U.S. Navy's Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) based in Washington, D.C. Under the contract, BAE Systems will provide system engineering and integration support for the Trident II (D5) Fleet Ballistic Missile Strategic Weapon System (SWS) program.

The contract is a continuation of a range of system engineering, test, analysis, IT, and logistics solutions performed by BAE Systems for SSP since 1956. The contract will be completed by September 2006.

In support of the Strategic Weapon System, BAE Systems will modify and update system test procedures and plan for and participate in SWS testing during submarine overhaul, refit and backfit. The company will also provide system engineering and integration efforts in the areas of system coordination, interface definition and control, technical documentation, fleet support, information systems, material support, facilities engineering, configuration management and logistics management.

BAE Systems will also provide technical services for Tomahawk Land Attack Missile-Nuclear (TLAM-N) Support and Advanced Systems Studies, Strategic Weapon System Underwater Launch Technology Sustainment, TRIDENT II (D5) Life Extension Systems Engineering, and TRIDENT Submarine Operation and Employment Studies.

"This award continues our 49 year relationship with the Navy's Strategic Systems Programs, exemplifying a true partnership," said Larry Wise, BAE Systems' president for Technology Solutions & Services. "We look forward to continuing our support to SSP and to the nation's most secure nuclear deterrent."

Work will be performed by BAE Systems personnel in Silver Spring, Md.
