BAE Systems has been awarded a $39 million contract to provide 300 units missile warning systems to the U.S. Army for finding and protecting against infrared threats.
The third-generation CMWS units will be integrated with the Army’s Gen3 system, which is designed to help detect and evade adversarial small arms fire, BAE said Tuesday.
“Our Common Missile Warning System has been battle tested with more than 2,100 systems delivered and integrated on more than 30 different platform types,” said Bill Staib, BAE director of threat management solutions.
Staib added the Gen3 updates are intended to build missile warning, hostile fire indication and data recording systems in an “all in one box.”
This order is the first under the Army’s $496 million Gen3 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which calls for up to 1,300 units.
