BAE Systems has opened its new engineering and production facility in Manchester, N.H. as the latest step in a series of strategic facility investments across the country – including in Austin, Texas; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Huntsville, Ala.

The 200,000-square-foot Manchester facility includes engineering design space, modern laboratories, and office space, providing the company with additional capacity to support the design and development of electronic warfare (EW) systems for the United States and its allies.

“Our new Manchester facility is critical to developing next-generation electromagnetic warfare systems and accelerating the delivery of capabilities to our customers,” said Ray Brousseau, vice president and deputy general manager at BAE Systems Electronic Systems. “This investment will support our workforce, improve operational efficiency and research capabilities, and enable us to continue delivering high-quality, trusted products.”

BAE Systems’ advanced EW systems combine threat warning and self-protection capabilities to help pilots conduct their missions and return home safely. The growth of the company’s EW programs provides career growth opportunities for employees in Manchester. The company is hiring hundreds of skilled local candidates for critical roles to accommodate growth, including positions in engineering, finance, and project management.

“At BAE Systems, we offer challenging and rewarding work, great career opportunities, a welcoming culture, and an opportunity to take part in a mission that is critical to the safety and security of the U.S. military,” said Steve Copley, Manchester Project Director at BAE Systems. “Our Manchester facility provides an excellent, modern work environment for our employees, and deepens our roots in the Granite State.”

BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems sector is a global leader in researching, developing, implementing, and maintaining cutting-edge commercial, defense, and space electronics, with more than 6,000 employees in New Hampshire.

DoD Faces Growing Risks from Reliance on Lead in Electronics

12/13/2021 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
