BAE Systems Awarded $132 Million U.S. Navy Contract


BAE Systems may add intelligence jobs through new contract, tax credit

Under a recently awarded $132 million U.S. Navy contract, BAE Systems will reportedly provide Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance technical services for the military.

According to a release from the company, the technical services will be performed on a range of military vehicles, structures, small boats and ships.

"After 25 years, we are proud to have the opportunity to continue providing these critical services across the globe," Dave Herr, president of BAE Systems Support Solutions, said in a statement. "The strong relationship we have with our customer allows our entire team to meet and exceed the specialized C4ISR needs of the military's men and women in the field."

The announcement of the contract award coincides with the company's recent decision to remain in New York's Southern Tier through $40 million in job and investment tax credits, reported the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin.

Such credits could enable the contractor to add defense and intelligence jobs, which would likely require professionals who have obtained security clearance.
