"We perform expert, integrated engineering and sustainment support services that meet the development demands of the Navy," acting president of BAE Systems Intelligence & Security sector Mark Keeler said in a press release.
BAE will also develop and install mission systems for NAWCAD's Special Communications Mission Solutions Division. The communications equipment to be deployed is secured and is used by NAWCAD, the U.S. Army, Air Force and many other commands and federal agencies.
