WASHINGTON. BAE Systems will provide intelligence support to the U.S. Army in a $437 million task order, the company announced. BAE Systems will deliver open source capabilities to the Army from publicly available sources, and will provide the Army's Intelligence and Security Command with training, policy and governance recommendations, assessments, and implementation of emerging capabilities.
A secure cloud hosting environment will also be established by the company to accomplish the work.
The task order is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract awarded under the U.S. General Services Administration's (GSA) One Acquisition Solution program. The acquisition was managed by GSA's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center on behalf of the Army.
In July, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded BAE Systems a contract worth up to $4.7 million to integrate machine learning into intelligence gathering involving radio frequency signals.
