Serco‘s North American subsidiary has won a potential five-year, $38 million contract to modernize the high-altitude electromagnetic pulse protection of Ballistic Missile Early Warnings Systems at Thule Air Base in Greenland.

Serco Inc. will apply a design-build-install-test approach to update the radar system’s HEMP protection for the U.S. Air Force Space Command, the company said Friday.

Dan Allen, Serco  Inc. chairman and CEO, said the contract supports the company’ efforts to grow its footprint in the defense market sector.

The contract was awarded through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers‘ Resilient Power and Mechanical Systems basic ordering agreement.

The company’s C4ISR and base modernization service teams also support HEMP radar upgrade efforts at U.S. air bases in Alaska, North Dakota, Massachusetts and the U.K.
