BAE Systems has won a $8, 268, 703 contract modification to finish building and delivering to the U.S. Navy systems designed to destroy and neutralize mines.
The modification also includes firm-fixed-price contract line item numbers for the company to calibrate, maintain and manage the Archerfish program, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
Archerfish systems are built to launch from surface ships, helicopters and unmanned underwater vehicles.
According to BAE, a fiber optic data link commands Archer as it identifies mines and deploys a charged warhead at the mines.
The company will perform work in Portsmouth, U.K. through September 2014 under the Navy’s weapons procurement funds for fiscal years 2012 and 2013.
