“The Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is a pillar in our national
security, and our job is to guarantee it never fails,” said Erin Moseley,
president of BAE Systems’ Support Solutions sector. “Our team has the right
experience, expertise and past performance to support the Air Force and ensure
the operational readiness of these vital strategic assets.”

The work, managed by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, will be performed
primarily at three locations: Hill Air Force Base in Utah, Vandenberg Air
Force Base in California, and in Shreveport, Louisiana, near Barksdale Air
Force Base. BAE Systems will be actively recruiting from the existing skilled
workforce at each site.

For more than 50 years, BAE Systems has provided engineering and integration
for the U.S. Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs, supporting submarine-launched
ballistic missiles.
