Army Picks BAE’s US Subsidiary for Potential $98M Missile Warning System Contract

BAE Systems‘ U.S. subsidiary has won a potential five-year, $97.9 million contract to help the U.S. Army prototype and produce a Limited Interim Missile Warning System.

Two bids were submitted to the Army Contracting Command for the hybrid contract and work will take place in Nashua, New Hampshire, the Defense Department said Friday.

The service branch seeks LIMWS quick reaction capability that will consist of a midwave infrared sensor package, a system processor and a control/display unit, according to a FedBizOpps summary.

BAE will also provide hardware, software, field programmable gate arrays, firmware, associated support equipment, technical data and support tools as part of the contract.

The goal of the program is to bridge a gap between the Army’s current AAR-57 Common Missile Warning System and upcoming threat warning system program of record.

Work under the contract is scheduled to finish  Dec. 15, 2022.
