BAE Systems to install automated entry systems for U.S. Army

BAE Systems has received a U.S. Army contract worth up to $95 million to install and maintain automated security systems to control access to Army bases and other installations, BAE announced on May 25. This award expands the company’s work in supporting physical security at government sites.

The automated installation entry systems use software and hardware to verify information on individuals, and match that information to data on registered vehicles. The company will install the systems at multiple Army sites in the U.S., and the network will be designed to transfer information across those sites.

BAE Systems currently provides similar systems for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and others in security-critical environments, says a company press release.

“These systems are vital to advancing physical security for the Army,” said Richard Anderson, vice president and general manager for integrated technical solutions at BAE Systems. “They will enable guards to quickly permit or deny entry to drivers based on threat levels. They will also lower overall security costs by reducing guard requirements.”

The contract includes an initial two-year award plus one option year that, if exercised, could extend its total value to $95 million. Work will be performed primarily at BAE Systems operations in North Charleston, SC.

BAE Systems is a global defense, security, and aerospace company with approximately 107,000 employees worldwide. In 2009, BAE Systems reported sales of £22.4 billion (about US$ 36.2 billion).
