Engility to deliver network-centric capabilities to US Navy
US-based engineering services company Engility Holdings has secured a new $39m contract to provide the US Navy with secure, network-centric warfare capabilities.
The contract has been awarded by the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Programme Executive Office of Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I).
The deal will see the company enable the PEO C4I Ship Integration Programme Office, known as PMW 760, to integrate various network and communications systems.
It is expected to help PMW 760 develop a single, consolidated and secure technology platform baseline for US Navy and US Coast Guard (USCG) fleets.
Engility Holdings chief executive officer Lynn Dugle said: “PMW 760 enhances the US Navy’s flexibility and efficiency, while increasing warfighter capability, establishing a technology platform capable of meeting the diverse and evolving threats facing our armed services.
“Engility will deploy domain expertise in cyber security and enterprise modernisation to assist the navy in information technology (IT) service delivery, cyber technical leadership, fleet operations and C4I systems.”
PMW 760 is responsible for the design, integration, testing and provision of interoperable, cyber-secure capabilities to the US Navy and the USCG during new construction and modernisation projects.
The company will extend its support to PMW 760 as it begins the process of integrating technologies toward a common C4I capability baseline for both navy and coastguard vessels.
The second-quarter 2017 award is a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract that offers new work for Engility, comprising a base year and four additional one-year extension options.
