BAE Systems to help develop and deliver next-gen mission technologies

BAE Systems has been invited by the US Department of Defense to compete for future research and development task orders awarded under a nine-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.

The contract provides fast, flexible, low-cost solutions across technical disciplines to meet the current and future technology needs of the US military.

BAE Systems is one of 15 companies selected by the Defense Technical Information Center to compete for future research & development and support task orders expected to exceed $15 million. These task orders will be awarded by the Air Force Installation Contract Agency/KD Offutt AFB, Nebraska and support the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center Program Management Office. The ceiling value for all future work awarded under the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity is $28 billion.

Al Whitmore, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector, said: “This large-scale contract provides us with a tremendous opportunity to reach across BAE Systems and leverage our own internal research and development investments to help the DoD solve its most difficult mission challenges.

“We are excited to help the government leverage innovations in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and directed energy technologies to enhance the security and effectiveness of our warfighters across physical and digital domains.”
