BAE Systems Inc. will support Air Force efforts to monitor nuclear treaty compliance around the globe under a contract potentially worth $20 million over five years.
Under the contract, the company will furnish engineering, research and program management services to the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) at Patrick Air Force Base, company officials said.
The company has supported AFTAC for 15 years, the officials said. Work will be performed at Patrick Air Force Base.
The company has established a new facility at Melbourne, Fla., to accommodate its growing business serving Space Coast customers, the officials said in the same announcement.
BAE announced last month that Linda Hudson had been promoted to president and chief executive officer of BAE Systems of Rockville, Md. She succeeds retired Marine Corps Gen. Tony Zinni. Hudson also will serve as chief operating officer of parent company BAE Systems plc.
