The Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Mission Control Complex (MCC) is an information-gathering system used by the military in combat operations. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) awarded the $16 million contract to the Pensacola-based company called Whitesell-Green Inc.

Eric S. Wiese.
The BAMS MCC will be run by CPRW-11 group based in NAS Jax. Work for this project is expected to be completed by December 2014.
