BAE Systems has won a $26.1 million contract modification from the Navy to continue providing engineering and technical services in support of identification system programs, the Navy announced late last week.
The Rockville, Md., company will conduct the work at the Naval Air Warfare-Aircraft Division, Patuxent Naval Air Station, Md. The new work supplements a previously awarded cost-plus-fixed fee contract, Navy officials said. The company is expected to complete the work by April 2008.
The Navy did specify the precise nature of the work. Modern military forces rely on electronic devices or systems to distinguish friendly forces from enemy forces.
BAE Systems has about 45,000 employees and had annual sales of about $10 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 11
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list
of the largest federal IT contractors. The 2007 Top 100 list is due out May 14.
