Oversight management of the AWS contractor's depot operations and operational evaluation is also supported under this contract.

"This award continues our strong and established partnership with our Aegis customer as well as satisfying the U. S. Navy's requirements for technical support at the Aegis System's prime contractor facility,� said Bruce Hamilton, president, BAE SYSTEMS Applied Technologies.
