ROCKVILLE, Maryland – BAE Systems has received a $60 million readiness and sustainment contract to support the U.S. Navy’s Standard Missile (SM) program. The company will provide a range of services to establish and maintain the ship interfaces for the Standard Missile family and ensure the proper launching and communications for the missiles, which are fired from ships. These services include systems and software engineering, systems integration, testing, and computer-aided design.

BAE Systems has served the Navy on SM and predecessor missile programs for more than 40 years. Under the same contract, the company also works with the Navy to support SM programs for allied nations, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Taiwan, and the Netherlands.

“This contract continues our long history of performance as a leading systems integrator for the Navy,” said Steve Metz, vice president of Maritime Programs at BAE Systems. “This work is vital to ships around the world equipped with Standard Missiles. It is of particular interest to our allied nations wishing to maintain Anti-Air Warfare Capability on existing platforms.”

The five-year contract was awarded by the Navy’s Program Executive Office for Integrated Warfare Systems, which fields weapon systems for non-nuclear surface ships. It includes a one-year term, plus four option years. If all of the options are exercised, the total value could reach approximately $60 million. The work will be conducted at a BAE Systems Support Solutions facility in Rockville, Maryland, and at customer sites in Tucson, Arizona and around the world.
