Navair communications deal goes to BAE

A contract potentially worth $109 million from the Naval Air Systems Command to continue delivering communications electronics support has been awarded to BAE Systems Inc.

BEA Systems of Rockville, Md., will help Navair's Special Communications Requirements division furnish maintenance, training, upgrades and other support for special-purpose communications electronics systems.

The contract has an initial value of $20.6 million for one year, and will support the Navy as well as other government agencies, including the Homeland Security Department.

The defense company performs most of the work at more than a dozen field technical units near key Navair sponsors throughout the United States and overseas. BAE provides field engineers, electronics technicians, trainers and logistics specialists who deliver customized support to users.
