BAE Systems to provide intelligence analysis for US Defense Intelligence Agency in multi-billion dollar contract.

The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has awarded BAE Systems a prime contractor position on Solutions for Intelligence Analysis, a ten-year multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity with a combined ceiling value of over $17 billion. 

Through this contract, the company will provide worldwide coverage, support and assistance to DIA, delivering timely, objective and cogent military intelligence to warfighters, defense planners and policymakers.

“We are delivering secure, cost-efficient services to maintain and enhance the mission-critical systems DIA relies on every day” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of the sector’s Intelligence Solutions business. “We’re excited to continue our longstanding partnership with DIA and bring our next-generation talent to work for their mission.”

BAE Systems was the largest provider of analytic services on DIA’s prior indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity Solutions for Intelligence Analysis and has provided intelligence support and related services to the agency for over three decades. The company will continue to bring a workforce of cleared personnel in highly technical fields with an excellent understanding of the customers, their mission, and their environment.

BAE Systems delivers a broad range of services and solutions enabling militaries and governments to successfully carry out their respective missions. The company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains. BAE Systems takes pride in its support of national security and those who serve. 

This announcement comes hot on the heels of another big  indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract BAE Systems has been awarded. Only days ago it was announced that the U.S. Navy has signed a $2.68 billion for the purchase of thousands of additional APKWS® Laser-Guided Rockets, the company's combat-proven, low-cost precision munition. The contract demonstrates continuing demand for precision strike capabilities that empower and protect warfighters while reducing collateral damage.

"Our armed forces customers are looking to apply just the right amount of force at the right location to execute their missions without unnecessary damage," said Marc Casseres, director of Precision Guidance and Sensing Solutions at BAE Systems. "APKWS rockets provide warfighters with the unique ability to precisely engage targets without excessive force, reducing the risk to nearby forces, civilians, and assets. It’s the driving force behind growing global demand."
