BAE to support U.S. Strategic Command

BAE Systems will develop and maintain new capabilities for an air-strike mission planning system under a new $42.5 million contract awarded by the U.S. Strategic Command.

The Air Vehicle Planning System program will run through July 2012, and includes system design, development, maintenance and testing.

The system provides rapid, automated mission planning for the Air Force's bombers, cruise missiles, manned and unmanned reconnaissance aircraft and air-refueling tanker support aircraft. The system also develops plans for operational and test missions.

BAE's team includes McCallie Associates, Vet Defense, All Native Systems and Intelligent Software Solutions. The team will perform the work at BAE Systems facilities in Bellevue, Neb., and San Diego. The company will provide on-site support at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.

BAE of Rockville, Md., ranks No. 15 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
