Bae systems logo_ExecutiveBizBAE Systems will continue to maintain the U.S. Air Force Space Command’s space radar system for missile threat detection and surveillance operations under a contract extension worth nearly $540 million.

The company will manage and operate the Solid State Phased Array Radar System, which works to monitor various objects in the Earth’s orbit, BAE Systems said Monday.

Tom White, senior director of mission support services at BAE Systems, said the company intends to help the Space Command build up its threat preparedness.

The radar system is built to identify satellites, rocket parts and other objects in space.

The three-year contract is intended to extend a previous project that BAE Systems has worked on since 2007.
