The company will provide serviceable components and subsystems for 28 test ranges with radar, telemetry, and optical tracking systems around the world. IRSP provides services across the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Energy, NASA, and at least seven foreign governments, according to BAE.
The work will be primarily performed at BAE Systems’ IRSP component repair facility in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., and is expected to be complete by Dec. 31, 2020.
