The company will research and develop hardware and software solutions to design next-generation technologies for space, high-altitude, and missile defense.

As an IDIQ awardee, BAE Systems is among a group of eight companies that will compete for future task orders under the contract.

In addition to assisting with prototype design, the task orders call for the support of component testing, as well as the integration of prototypes into systems and subsystems that can be evaluated in a laboratory, or relevant environment, with limited operational system testing.

The contract is reflective of the Army’s innovative “concept to combat” design approach, which expedites the roll-out of important next-generation technologies.
