Fylingdales SSPARS BAE Systems, Fort Walton Beach, Fla., is being awarded a $5.1 million firm-fixed-price incentive with award-fee and award-term, cost-reimbursement contract. DefenseLINK notes merely that “this action provides for operations and maintenance of the solid state phased Array Radar Systems at five radar sites worldwide.” They are almost certainly referring to the multinational BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System) and American PAVE PAWS missile tracking & warning installations at Clear Air Force Station, AK; Thule Air Base, Greenland; Royal Air Force Fylingdales, UK; Beale Air Force Base, CA; and Cape Cod Air Force Station, MA. The contract includes radar and mission computer maintenance, communications systems maintenance including maintenance of military satellite communications systems, communications-electronics maintenance, local area network management, precision measurement equipment calibration and maintenance, logistics support, civil engineering, vehicle maintenance and environmental compliance management. Solicitations began April 2005, negotiations were complete January 2006, and work will be complete September 2018. The 21st Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base, CO, who provides missile warning and space control to NORAD and U.S. Strategic Command, issued the contract (FA2517-06-C-8001).
