BAE Systems reach C4I milestone

BAE Systems has successfully upgraded the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) capabilities on the 5,000th mine-resistant tactical vehicle for US and allied forces.

The work is part of the Tactical Vehicle Engineering and Prototyping Support Services programme through the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic, based in Charleston, South Carolina, with the integration work taking place at BAE Systems’ facility in nearby Summerville.

The C4I upgrades enhance vehicle communications systems, intercom systems, mobile network systems, and soldier protective systems on a variety of mine-resistant vehicles, including M-ATV vehicles, MaxxPro® DASH and Ambulances, and RG-31 platforms.

The milestone comes as the US Army, a SPAWAR customer, seeks to improve the mission capabilities of its tactical vehicle fleet and enhance situational awareness for soldiers.

Kris Busch, vice president of BAE Systems’ C4ISR and Electronic Systems business said: “Our experts ensure that rigorous quality standards are met when installing this equipment, because these technologies and communications systems must perform flawlessly when our soldiers are in harm’s way.

“These vehicles are being redeployed throughout the world to support critical current and ongoing missions.”
