Navy Awards E-Systems $40-Million Contract

E-Systems, Inc. has been awarded a contract in excess of $40 million by the U.S. Navy for the development, production and testing of a Full Scale Engineering Development Model of the Battle Group Passive Horizon Extension System Surface Terminal (BGPHES-ST).

The award follows the successful completion by the Melpar Division (Virginia) of a multimillion-dollar system definition and design contract.

The new contract will also be performed by the Melpar Division, a leading supplier of electronic warfare and reconnaisance systems to the U.S. Department of Defense.

BGPHES-ST will support combat information needs of at-sea commanders in tactical operations.

The Melpar Division is the prime contractor, supported by a team of subcontractors. The engineering development contract will culminate with shipboard installation and evaluation at sea.

The operational capability provided by this system will satisfy key Navy tactical requirements through the 1990s.
