SRA International has been selected by the US Navy as a prime contractor to support integrated cyber security operations (ICO) indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract.

Under the ICO contract, SRA International, which has been selected by the US Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic, will support communications and information capabilities for the nation's soldiers.

If all options are exercised, the multi-award, five-year IDIQ contract will have a ceiling value of $900m.

The company will compete for task orders comprising the full lifecycle of cyber security activities to support command, control, communication, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C5ISR) capabilities.

In addition, the company will support sustainable, secure, survivable and interoperable information operations, enterprise information services (EIS) and space capabilities for the US Navy.

SRA International Defense Group senior vice-president George Batsakis said the company will provide secure, reliable communications to meet the need for troops.

"The multi-award, five-year IDIQ contract will have a ceiling value of $900m."

"SSC Atlantic's work is essential to our country's safety and security and we are proud to serve as a partner on this mission-focused work," Batsakis said.

Recently, SRA International has received a contract to provide mission-critical support for the US Department of the Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC) Information Technology (IT) Afloat Operations.

SSC Atlantic aims to rapidly deliver and support solutions that allow information dominance for the naval, joint, national and coalition warfighters.

The US Navy engineering centre, SSC Atlantic also designs, builds, tests, fields and supports many of the frontline C5ISR systems, both those which are currently operational and those being planned for the future.
