bae systems plc (BA/) Key Developments

BAE Systems Wins Contract Worth Up to $1.2 Billion

BAE Systems was awarded a contract worth up to $1.2 billion from the U.S. Army for the Engineering, Manufacturing, and Development (EMD) and Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) of the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV). The program aims to provide the U.S. Army with a highly survivable and mobile fleet of vehicles that addresses a critical need to replace the Vietnam-era M113s.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Selects BAE Systems plc for Phase 2 of its Adaptive Radar Countermeasures Program

BAE Systems announced its selection by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for Phase 2 of its Adaptive Radar Countermeasures (ARC) program, aimed at developing technology to counter threats from adversaries’ air defense systems. Currently, electronic warfare (EW) systems must rely only on known emitter databases to characterize emerging threats. As part of ARC Phase 2, BAE Systems will deliver a prototype system that will feature software algorithms capable of detecting and countering emerging radar threats, providing a major capability enhancement without the need for costly hardware upgrades. This award follows BAE Systems’ work in Phases 1A and 1B to develop technology that leverages advancements in EW systems to rapidly characterize emerging radar threats, synthesize electronic countermeasures, and assess the effectiveness of the response. Together, Phases 1 and 2 of the ARC program represent a three-year, $21.6 million opportunity for the company. Final implementation of the ARC program is projected to occur by 2018, with demonstrations through live flight tests on an existing EW system.

BAE Systems to Create Progressive Communication Framework in Response to Adversarial Threats

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded BAE Systems a contract to combat the rapid evolution of technological threats posed by U.S. adversaries. The work will aim to develop a new framework of reliable, jam-resistant networked communications as part of the Communications in Contested Environments (C2E) program. Valued at $3.2 million, the contract for a new open system architecture (OSA) is for the first phase of DARPA's C2E initiative. While current military communications architectures provide rugged, reliable services, they lack the flexibility to expand and adapt to demands for increased or different performance. Under this contract with DARPA, BAE Systems will develop an OSA that is designed to allow new and more effective communications platforms to support allied forces in highly contested environments. The OSA will be required to support ongoing, evolutionary technology upgrades to match application demands and changing adversary threats.
