BAE Systems has won a five-year, $120 million contract to integrate and test the U.S. Navy’s Aegis combat system onboard surface ships.

The company will also work to develop, engineer and maintain the system in order to sustain the weapon’s readiness, BAE said Monday.

“Together, we are enhancing the U.S. Navy’s combat readiness, ” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ intelligence and security sector.

The Aegis system is designed to use computers and radars to monitor and guide weapons at hostile objects.

BAE also provides technology for Aegis Ashore, the land-based portion of the program.
