CSC Wins $45 Million U.S. Navy Contract to Expand Suretrak System for Maritime Surveillance
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has won a contract to expand the scope of its SureTrak surveillance system for the Naval Air Systems Command, located in Lexington Park, Md. CSC estimates the value of the five-year contract to be approximately $45 million. This award follows and is incremental to a contract CSC signed with the command in May 2006.
Under the terms of the contract, CSC will provide SureTrak system development, installation and management outside Department of Defense facilities. Expansion areas include providing security for oil platforms in West Africa, Reagan International Airport and the New Jersey Port Authority. In addition, CSC will develop a prototype system to integrate track information on U.S. Navy ships.
SureTrak is a range surveillance system that integrates and displays tracking data from a wide range of sensors, including surface and air surveillance radar, shipboard radar, global positioning system transponders, environmental monitoring systems, thermal and daylight cameras and closed-circuit television cameras. The CSC-developed tracking system is a crucial range management tool used to ensure that military ships, planes and private vehicles are within their proper boundaries on the waterways.
“CSC is honored to play a key role in expanding the Navy’s SureTrak system, a tool with broad applicability within the DoD and civilian sectors,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector business unit.
