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.
