BAE Systems has won a nine-year, $187.4 million contract to build and integrate radio and communications systems into U.S. Navy combatant ships.

The company will perform engineering work on 12 Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers and one Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer, BAE said Monday.

The contract is part of the Navy’s new construction program that aims to deploy new surface combatant ships for the U.S. naval fleet.

DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ intelligence and security sector and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 list for 2015, noted that the company has engineered 63 DDG 51 class destroyers for the Navy in over 29 years.
