JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a $16 million contract Aug. 14 to Whitesell-Green, Inc., a small business out of Pensacola, Fla., for construction of a Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Mission Control Complex (MCC) at Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax).

"This project will bring state-of-the-art technology that will enable American and Allied Warriors around the world to best provide Operational Commanders the real time information they require to fight and win," said Commander Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 11 (CPRW-11) Commodore Capt. Eric S. Wiese.

The BAMS MCC will fall under control of CPRW-11 based at NAS Jax, will be fully integrated into the mission of Wing 11, and is seen as a welcome addition to broad area maritime surveillance, explained Wiese.

The work to be performed on this project includes construction of a new freestanding two-story structure with two electromagnetic interference shielded mission control systems, a tactical operations center with sensitive compartmented information facility spaces, and numerous roof-top mounted antennas.

The project will renovate some interior spaces; the renovations include a reconfigured command suite, systems reconfiguration, and in some cases finish upgrades. Also, a new antenna infrastructure will be built at a remote site south of the new facility.

NAVFAC Southeast continues to build on its success by providing contract opportunities to small businesses.

"We continue to review all projects for potential small business opportunities," said Nelson Smith, NAVFAC Southeast small business manager.

Each year NAVFAC establishes target goals are established for Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business, Historically Underutilized Business Zone Small Business, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, and Women-Owned Small Business categories. Smith explained that the maximum practicable utilization of small business concerns is a matter of national interest with both social and economic benefits.

Work for this project is expected to be completed by December 2014.
