BAE SYSTEMS to Protect Army Aircraft with Advanced System.
BAE Systems in Nashua, N.H., received a five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) award with a maximum ceiling of $1.4 billion on May 19. The Army ordered 80 CMWS systems for $23.2 million under the IDIQ. An IDIQ affords the Army the flexibility to order at various times any number of systems up to the maximum quantity specified in the contract.
CMWS was deployed to support the global war on terrorism ahead of schedule and is currently flying on multiple Army and allied helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. CMWS is credited with saving multiple aircraft and crews from man-portable air defense missiles.
BAE Systems has been delivering ATIRCM/CMWS systems to the Army under a previous IDIQ awarded in September 2004. The company was awarded a low-rate initial production contract in 2002 for up to 484 LRIP systems.
CMWS, BAE Systems' ATIRCM system, and the advanced infrared countermeasures munitions flares comprise the primary components of the Army's suite of integrated infrared countermeasures.
