IT firm NCI has been awarded a $22 million prime contract from the U.S. Army to modernize nine Home Station Mission Command Centers across the world.
The contract, which was awarded by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems, has a 3-year base period with eight optional tasks.
“Every day, the U.S. Army is planning, mobilizing support, and making strategic decisions critical to our national security and that of our allies,” said Paul A. Dillahay, NCI president and CEO. “It is imperative for our Army leaders to have the mission-critical IT solutions necessary to ensure military readiness and situational awareness to successfully defend against emerging threats.
The command centers, known as HSMCC, enable uninterrupted mission command through a network comprised of intuitive, secured, standards-based capabilities adapted to commanders’ requirements that are integrated into a common operating environment.
“NCI is pleased to have this new opportunity to support the U.S. Army PEO-EIS by upgrading mission command systems that support vital HSMCC operations and our military forces around the world,” Dillahay added. “We look forward to delivering transformative technologies that will help our warfighter community meet the challenges of the global environment.”
