General Dynamics Information Technology has won an estimated $118 million contract to support the critical information network that is key to Army efforts.

The Cybersecurity and Network Operations Mission Support contract states GDIT will provide broad IT and cybersecurity support for the Army’s Department of Defense Information Network. The single-award Alliant 2 task order is for a 5-month base period with four 12-month options and one 6-month extension.

Under the contract, GDIT will support Network Enterprise Technology Command, Army Cyber Command and Chief Information Officer/G-6 out of Fort Huachuca. Army officials rely on the commands to execute intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance duties along with long-range precision fires and a number of other critical tasks.

“We are excited to expand GDIT’s work with NETCOM and utilize our global capabilities,” said Senior Vice President Leigh Palmer, head of GDIT’s Defense Division. “This award reinforces GDIT’s ability to deploy broad resources and provide exceptional talent in Sierra Vista, Arizona.” 

Army NETCOM was in need of highly specialized staff at Fort Huachuca and also needed to address enterprise issues globally. GDIT’s capabilities lie at the intersection of these requirements, the company said. 

Under the contract, GDIT will support NETCOM’s current and future operations, network operations, infrastructure, systems engineering, sustainment and interoperability. GDIT will provide real-time network monitoring, security compliance, incident/problem triage, sensor grid monitoring, release management and capability management.
