The U.S. Air Force has successfully completed the transition of its’ Minuteman III Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Integration Support Contract (ISC) work to BAE Systems. In July 2013, BAE Systems was awarded the eight and a half year contract to support the Future Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Sustainment and Acquisition Construct (FISAC) ISC program, which carries an estimated total value of $534 million. BAE Systems has been working directly with the Air Force and others in the ICBM community over the past nine months to transition over the work associated with this contract.
Under the contract, BAE Systems is providing systems engineering, integration, testing, and other services to support 450 deployed Minuteman III missiles. The Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles are one part of the U.S.’s "triad" of strategic nuclear forces, which also includes strategic bombers and nuclear-armed submarines.
Work on the FISAC ISC contract, managed by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, is being performed primarily at Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
