BAE Systems has been awarded a five-year, $699 million contract for Defense Supercomputing Resource Center (DSRC) operations, maintenance and management services.

“This award reaffirms the best-in-class experience our Huntsville team delivers for our government partners as a leading systems integrator of solutions and advanced technologies,” said Lisa Hand, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Integrated Defense Solutions.

Describing the contract, BAE said in a written announcement, “The program provides the Department of Defense (DoD) supercomputing capabilities, high-speed network communications and computational science expertise that enable DoD scientists and engineers to conduct a wide-range of focused research and development, test and evaluation and acquisition engineering activities. This partnership puts advanced technology in the hands of U.S. forces more quickly, less expensively and with greater certainty of success.”

BAE’s management and technical support to the Army will also aid Navy DSRC, Stennis Space Center, Mississippi; the Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center DSRC, Vicksburg, Mississippi; the Air Force Research Laboratory DSRC, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio; and the Army Research Laboratory DSRC, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.
