The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded BAE Systems two contracts totaling $107 million to support its surveillance systems programs.
BAE Systems' technology solutions sector of Rockville, Md., received a $67 million contract for systems engineering and implementation services and a $40 million contract for management and financial services. Both contracts, awarded last month, have one base year and four one-year options.
FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City, N.J., made the awards under its Multiple Area Support Service, Engineering Support Service Area contract vehicle. The Terminal Business Unit, the initial operating unit of FAA's new Air Traffic Organization, manages the surveillance systems programs.
BAE Systems has provided similar services to FAA for 10 years. Under the new deals, it will support the surveillance program offices in their management of air traffic control radar systems from inception through decommissioning and replacement.
Under the systems engineering and implementation contract, BAE Systems will provide technical, engineering, analytical and planning support throughout the lifecycle of both terminal and en route radars.
Under the management and financial contract, the company will help with investment analysis, hardware and software development, acquisition, implementation and in-service activities.
