US Navy's PEO C4I contracts Booz Allen for tactical networks modernisation
Booz Allen Hamilton has secured a new cost-plus-fixed-fee deal to provide secure and reliable communications networks for US Navy forces.
The $96.1m contract has been awarded by the US Navy’s Programme Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I) to support the modernisation of its tactical communications networks.
The Tactical Networks Programme Office (PMW 160) is responsible for ensuring that navy forces have access to secure and reliable communications networks anywhere and on any platform, which is considered to be a difficult capability to achieve on land and at sea.
Booz Allen Hamilton will offer tactical networks support using cyber-resilient, integrated networks and foundation computer systems for sailors and joint and coalition partners under the newly signed PEO C4I contract.
Booz Allen Hamilton vice-president Ralph Wade said: “We are honoured to be selected as PMW 160’s primary industry partner to synchronise navy legacy programmes with the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services.
“Booz Allen develops and deploys cost-effective systems engineering solutions using technical expertise that harmonises innovation with practicality.
“We look forward to applying our cyber capabilities and strategic prowess in digital platforms to strengthen the robust network that navy tactical forces rely on every day.”
