BAE Systems has been awarded a U.S. Army contract valued at up to $95 million to provide controlled access technology to Army bases and other installations. Under the contract, BAE will install and maintain automated security systems that use hardware and software to verify statistics on individuals and then match that information to data on registered vehicles.
The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has awarded 11 contracts totaling $6.6 billion as part of its Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise, or SITE. The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts will last five years and extend across the defense intelligence enterprise and the intelligence community. Six large companies were awarded contracts: BAE Systems Information Technology Incorporated; General Dynamics Information Technology Incorporated; Lockheed Martin Corporation; Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation; Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC); and Systems Research and Applications Corporation (SRA).
BAE Systems has received a contract worth up to $347 million to provide U.S. Army soldiers with handheld laser target locators.
BAE Systems will provide thermal weapon sights to the U.S. Army under a $137 million contract that continues production of the widely used infrared sensors. These second-generation thermal sights are lighter, quieter, and use less power than the first generation sights, reducing the load on soldiers and decreasing requirements for battery power.
