BAE to Vie for Cyber Engineering Task Orders Under $898M IDIQ; Kris Busch Quoted

BAE Systems has landed a spot on a potential $898M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the U.S. Navy to offer cyber engineering services to naval, joint and national agencies.

“This award creates new opportunities for us to showcase our expertise in cyber threat exploitation and analysis, computer network defense, and security-focused systems engineering," Kris Busch, vice president of BAE's integrated defense solutions business, said in a statement released Wednesday.

He added the company plans to introduce artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and machine learning tools intended to help increase U.S. defenses against multiple threats.

BAE is among the 10 contractors selected for the multiple-award contract with a $962M ceiling value over seven and a half years.

Agencies can order  lifecycle service support for command, control, communications, computer and combat systems through the IDIQ and may issue additional task orders to update or secure imagery, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic warfare platforms.

The Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic manages the contract, which may also include the development, production, testing and deployment of autonomous and unmanned missions systems.
