BAE Systems received a $21 million contract from the US Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) to develop, maintain, and test software for sonar and other operational systems on ships and submarines and provide IT support for Web-based documentation and data storage.
The 5-year contract, which runs through 2014, was awarded competitively under the US Navy’s Seaport-e contract (N00178-04-D-4018) vehicle. Seaport-e is a $5.3 billion multiple-award umbrella contract that enables the US Navy to use an integrated approach to contracting for support services.

The NUWC is the Navy’s research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) engineering, and Fleet support center for submarine warfare systems and other systems associated with the undersea warfare.
