BAE Systems Inc. (OTCMKTS: BAESY) has been picked for a 5-year $68.5M indefinite-quantity, indefinite-delivery contract enabling it to continue offering lifecycle, engineering, and integration services supporting US aircraft carriers.
BAE awarded an air traffic control contract
The company will use decades of program history to develop, equip, test, produce, evaluate, withstand, and update the AN/SPN-46(V) Automatic Carrier Landing System under the Air Traffic Control and Landing Systems (ATC&LS) Engineering Products & Technical Services (EPTS) contract granted earlier this year.
BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions VP and General Manager Lisa Hand said, “With this win, BAE Systems retains a key air traffic control contract that we have held since 1973 to provide industry-leading systems integration capabilities and solutions that ensure the safety of critical carrier-based landing systems.”
Technicians from BAE Systems deploy all across the globe to assist warfighters. To maintain these crucial landing systems, the company’s staff use known and proven methodologies and their systems engineering and software development experience. Through onsite and remote technical assistance, the company’s effort result in better hardware dependability, system accuracy, low downtime, and a certified landing system.
BAE launches Hawkeye HWK1411
Recently, the company launched its backside-illuminated “Hawkeye” HWK1411 sensor that offers high-performance imaging capabilities with minimal weight, size, and power. The HWK1411 is the world’s first low-light complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensor that can take images in cloudy starlight. The 2Hawkeye” combines a huge photon-collection array with leading light sensitivity, the capacity to discern minor contrast changes, and decreased signal noise from electricity in one device.
BAE Systems Sensor Solutions director Robyn Decker said, “HWK1411 replaces larger and heavier legacy technology, and allows the military market to transition to the digital domain, creating a path to next-gen systems for the future. Capturing digital images is the first step toward delivering data fusion and augmented reality technology that will transform how warfighters perceive the battle space in ultra low-light condition.”
