The KeyW Holding Corp. has been awarded a place on a $182 million U.S. Navy contract for tagging, tracking and locating electronic equipment and support services, the company said.
The contract, awarded by the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic, is a 5-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract awarded to six companies through full and open competition, KeyW said.
Under the contract, KeyW will compete for task orders to acquire, field and perform logistics support for equipment designed for ground, air and maritime tracking. The contract will also deliver niche engineering services, including modification and customization of equipment, to meet global missions, and will support joint commands within the Defense Department, KeyW said.
“We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship with the Navy,” said Kirk Herdman, KeyW’s executive vice president for corporate strategy and business bevelopment. “This is a great opportunity for KeyW to further support the Navy’s Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) requirements by delivering quick-reaction custom hardware and next-generation software solutions to meet specific mission needs around the world.”
KeyW provides national security solutions for intelligence, cyber, counterterrorism customers, and employs more than 2,000.
