Under the five-year contract, Envistacom is tasked with providing mission-critical communications and operation support to the US Army 2nd Theater Signal Brigade and 102nd Strategic Signal Battalion.

Envistacom vice-president Alan Carson said: “Envistacom is dedicated to equipping warfighters with mission-critical technology necessary to counter existing and emerging threats, and we are honoured with the opportunity to expand our close partnership with the US Army.

“We respond quickly to support our customers, and I am confident that we have the right team of skilled and experienced experts to support critical activities provided by the ESG-Landstuhl.”
