iGov Technologies has received a contract from the US Marine Corps for the CDN Data Distribution System-Modular (DDS-M) small form-factor.

The award will fetch iGov a sum of $174m if the Marine Corps elects to exercise all contract options.

The firm fixed-price contract is valid for five years and requires the company to replace the legacy CDN DDS-M with a small form-factor solution that is designed to increase tactical networking performance and reduce the physical footprint.

iGov Technologies Corporate Business Development senior vice-president Chuck Reiche said: “We are very pleased with our award for the CDN small-form factor. We look forward to providing the Marine Corps with a small form-factor design that increases performance, simplifies baseline management, and reduces operational and lifecycle costs.”

iGov is a provider of mission-centric command, control, communications, computer (C4) solutions to its government customers.
