The company will perform work in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Virginia through September 2016 under the service branch’s Aegis Modernization Advanced Capability Build program, the Defense Department said Monday.

The Aegis BMD platform has a SPY-1 radar, SM-3 missile and MK 41 vertical launching system that work to provide surveillance, missile defense and anti-aerial warfare functions for warships.

The Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate approximately $26 million from the service branch’s research, test, development and evaluation, operations and maintenance, and shipbuilding and conversion funds from fiscal 2012 through fiscal 2016, according to DoD.
