$19 Million Award is One of Many Secure Wireless Orders Already Received in 2011
ASHBURN, Va. – June 14, 2011 – Telos® Corporation was recently awarded a new $19 million task order by the Air Force’s Electronic Systems Center, Cyber Integration Division Hanscom AFB, Mass. The award was made through the Network Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract vehicle.
Telos will implement a Second Generation Wireless Local Area Network (2G WLAN) at Air Force bases around the world. The project includes both sites that will integrate with existing wireless installations and sites that have no current wireless coverage. The company will conduct site surveys, design both core and expansion wireless networks, procure components, provide sustainment services, conduct engineering studies, provide on-site training and a 24×7 call center for ongoing support enterprise-wide.
“NETCENTS orders for the year are off to a hot start,” said Brendan Malloy, senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Secure Networks group. “We are receiving orders for a wide range of wireless projects, continuing our long history of providing Air Force warfighters with capabilities that enhance their mission effectiveness.”
Telos serves as a prime contractor on the five-year NETCENTS contract vehicle, which was recently extended by the government for an additional two years. NETCENTS is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that provides the Air Force, the Department of Defense and other federal agencies with a single vehicle through which to buy network-centric information technologies, networking equipment, and services, as well as voice, video and data communications hardware and software and telephony solutions from preferred contractors. NETCENTS provides a proven competitive edge for the federal government by reducing the time-to-market for critical networking and communications equipment and services.
