BAE Systems has received a potential $437M task order under the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services contract to provide open source support services for the U.S. Army.

The task order calls for BAE to offer data-derived open source support to Army Intelligence and Security Command as well as training, assessment, governance recommendations, implementation of emerging capabilities and policy support, the company said Tuesday.

“We’re proud to continue to partner with the U.S. Army and support their critical national security missions with this new capability,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE’s intelligence solutions business.

Jungck added the company’s open source platform is designed to deliver information to mission-critical initiatives amid the increasing volume of open source data and evolving threats.

The company will also set up and oversee a cloud hosting environment under the task order.
