BAE Systems To Lead Team on ISRT Development


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
BAE Systems (Electronics And Integrated Solutions)
: 05 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Joint development project on the US Navy’s Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting system to be headed by BAE Systems Electronic and Integrated Solutions Division
A BAE Systems-led team will partner with the military to develop the US Navy’s primary intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting (ISR&T) system. Under a $72 million contract from PEO C4I PMW 120, the team will enhance the current version of the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy and continue to transition DCGS-N to an application-based system through the DCGS-N Prime Mission Product.

Making ISR&T data visible, accessible, and understandable across services, DCGS-N is part of the Department of Defense’s DCGS family of systems and integrates ISR&T support capabilities into a Web-enabled, net-centric, and interoperable enterprise. DCGS-N uses commercial and government off-the-shelf hardware, software, tools, and standards to build a scalable, modular, and extensible multisource intelligence system that is interoperable with other DCGS systems.

“DCGS-N is a highly successful program that has recently achieved its Full Deployment Decision. We look forward to working with BAE Systems on near-term capability upgrades as we align towards the CANES architecture,” said Captain Robert Parker, program manager for PMW 120.

Along with BAE Systems, the team also consists of General Dynamics, Sun Microsystems, MTCSC, Space Dynamics Laboratory, InVisM, Argon ST, and Athena Consulting. As a DCGS-N Block 1 contractor, BAE Systems participated in the system’s development and operational evaluation aboard the USS Harry S. Truman.

“An integrated system will enable the Navy to maintain information dominance in any battle space by accelerating its ability to exchange information and data across multiple security domains, warfare areas, environments, and theatres,” said John Jarman, vice president and general manager of defence systems and solutions for BAE Systems. “With this award, we will continue working with PEO C4I and the fleet to improve information sharing within the Navy, other services, and the intelligence communities.”

BAE Systems' extensive experience in providing ISR&T systems for the DoD, as well as enterprise systems development, integration and system installation experience provides the technologies and background to help the Navy fully realize the capabilities needed for DCGS-N to support the fleet. BAE Systems will perform the development work at its new command, control, communications, computing, and intelligence development centres in San Diego and Charleston, South Carolina.
