BAE Systems secures information warfare contract

The US Navy has awarded BAE Systems a US$30 million contract to produce and integrate a mission-critical information warfare platform for the US Navy.

The US Navy has awarded BAE Systems a US$30 million contract to produce and integrate a mission-critical information warfare platform for the US Navy.

The US Navy has issued two task orders to BAE Systems for Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Services (CANES), which serves as a single support framework for all command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) applications.

BAE Systems has been tasked to supply two Arleigh Burke Class destroyers, a Virginia Class submarine, and two Blue Ridge Class command ships with mission-critical information warfare platforms to help personnel execute missions and remain connected while at sea.

Under the first task order from the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR), BAE Systems will be responsible for producing fully integrated CANES racks for two command ships, which are expected to be completed by February 2022.

The second task order involves the delivery of fully integrated CANES racks for two destroyers and a submarine, which are expected to be completed by March 2022.

“These two task orders permit us to continue our high-quality, high volume production and integration service, assembling and delivering CANES to the Navy safely and affordably,” Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions, said.

“CANES takes advantage of commercial-off-the-shelf insertion, which brings operational agility to the warfighter and savings to the US Navy.”
