The three-year contract, managed by Naval Sea Systems Command, builds on BAE
Systems’ ongoing support of the Navy’s submarine weapons programs. For more
than 30 years, the company has provided a range of services to NUWC in
Keyport, Washington; Newport, Rhode Island; and Groton, Connecticut. In
addition, for more than 40 years, BAE Systems has provided systems engineering
and integration to the Navy’s submarine-based Strategic Systems Programs. That
workforce, based in Rockville, Maryland, ensures the readiness of the Trident
II fleet ballistic missile and the SSGN Attack Weapons System.

“All of these systems are critical to national defense and security,” said
Kris Busch, vice president and general manager of Maritime & Defense Solutions
at BAE Systems. “Our team has the experience and the expertise to continue
supporting these Navy programs for many years to come.”

At the Keyport site, the BAE Systems team provides life-cycle systems support
services for the Heavyweight and Lightweight Torpedo, and for information
assurance and submarine towed systems. These services include engineering and
technical support, performance analysis and monitoring, training, logistics,
troubleshooting and problem resolution, and project management.

The team also supports tactical software systems development at Keyport, in
addition to administrative, training and ammunition operations at the
Strategic Weapons Facility Pacific in nearby Bangor, Washington.
