BAE to Provide US Army Troops with Latest Aircraft Survivability Equipment

  • Latest orders part of $496 million, three-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.

The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a series of contracts, worth approximately $40 million, for the third-generation (Gen3) configuration of its Common Missile Warning System (CMWS), which provides an enhanced capability for aircrews to locate and protect against infrared guided threats. The Gen3 configuration includes hostile fire indication to detect and evade small arms fire and new data recording capabilities for detailed post-mission analysis.

“These latest contracts build on nearly 10 years of experience providing the U.S. Army with thousands of aircraft survivability systems that have been integrated on more than 45 different platform types,” said Bill Staib, director of Threat Management Solutions at BAE Systems. “As a result of these contracts, we’ll continue to deliver Gen3 systems in support of U.S. Army and foreign military sale requirements over the next two years.”

The latest orders are funded under a recently awarded $496 million, three-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to deliver up to 1,300 Gen3 systems. The U.S. Army has now placed approximately $90 million in orders against the IDIQ since the first order in September 2013. Under the contract, BAE Systems will deliver CMWS hardware and provide systems engineering, software, and logistics support services for both the CMWS and the Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasure system.
