BAE to Provide Radio Communications Integration Support for New US Navy Ships

The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems a nine-year contract to support radio and communications systems design and integration for 13 surface combatant ships.

The initial award is valued at $28.4 million with the total value of the nine-year contract estimated at $187.4 million.


Under the DDG VI Radio Communications Systems (RCS) contract, BAE Systems’ experts will provide systems engineering, production, and integration for 12 DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers and one DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer. The company has held the RCS contract since 1985.

“We have a hard working and dedicated team of experts that has worked on every DDG 51 class destroyer in the U.S. Navy’s fleet, including most recently the USS John Finn,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector. “That’s 63 new ships over 29 years.”

The work is being completed as part of the Navy’s new construction program, which is designed to field advanced capability new surface combatant ships for the U.S. Naval fleet.
