Communications, cyber and intelligence operations solution provider Envistacom has secured a $235m prime contract from the US Army.

This three-year task order was awarded on the firm’s prime contract by US Army Contracting Command using the ten-year, $5.1bn Global Tactical Communications Systems (GTACS) II contract vehicle.

GTACS II will support network modernisation and deliver improved, cyber hardened capabilities to support all branches of the US Department of Defense (DoD).

It provides a competitive contracting mechanism to enable the procurement of new technology and services across the DoD.

GTACS II also covers information technology (IT) services and hardware to support the tactical communications network development for soldiers.

Envistacom president Alan Carson said: “We are honoured to be selected to prime this task order and eager to continue our support of the US Army and other DoD military branches by providing deployed warfighters with the technical services required to maintain critical communications, which furthers our shared mission of making the world a safer place.

“The Global FSR contract award is a testament to the army’s trust in Envistacom’s ability to deliver the required subject matter expertise, in-depth experience, and technical solutions worldwide.”

Envistacom is a provider of field service representative (FSR) support services for communications and IT infrastructure support services to the army, airforce, navy, marine corps, as well as Nato forces.

The FSR support services help in maintaining mission connectivity in critical theatres worldwide.

Under the FSR support, Envistacom will provide on-site technical services for tactical and strategic satellite communications systems, satellite terminals, as well as administration-related services including information assurance and cybersecurity.

Last March, Envistacom secured a contract from ACC to support the Army’s Program Executive Office Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T) and Project Manager Tactical Network (PM Tactical Network).

In January last year, US Army selected advanced and secure communications solutions provider DataPath to support its GTACS II programme.
