BAE wins $20M Navy contract for mine detection sensor

Contract is related to Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis program

BAE Systems has won a $20 million contract with the U.S. Navy to provide a mine detection sensor prototype that detects mines and obstacles in near-shore waters.

This contract is part of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis program, which uses BAE Systems’ approach to obtain resources in design, integration and testing.

“Having conducted extensive research and development in advanced sensors, airborne prototype systems, and sophisticated real time software, BAE Systems has worked closely with the Office of Naval Research to mature the technologies and capabilities to meet the Navy’s mine countermeasures needs on an accelerated timeline," said Reid Noguchi, general manager of BAE Systems Spectral Solutions.

Work will be performed at a number of the company’s locations across the United States, including Honolulu, Hawaii; Greenlawn, N.Y.; Acton, Mass.; and Hudson, N.H.
