The US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) has contracted Engility to deliver specialised solutions and full-system lifecycle support for advanced communications systems.

Part of the deployable communications capabilities system (DCCS) project, the $49m contract is firm-fixed-price and has a period of three years.

"This win continues a valued relationship with USNORTHCOM and highlights our team's ability to deliver highly technical solutions."

Engility will provide full-system life cycle support to USNORTHCOM, which includes capability design, solutions development, engineering, systems modifications, technical refresh, training and repairs.

Engility systems are capable of protecting non-secure data, voice, and video services for single operators or joint task forces.

The solutions are based on soldier-carried, vehicular and transit-case platforms.

Engility CEO Tony Smeraglinolo said: "This win continues a valued relationship with USNORTHCOM and highlights our team's ability to deliver highly technical solutions that put the needs of the customer and operators first."

Engility has already been delivering full-system architectures, methodologies, designs, engineering, and implementation of DCCS capabilities to USNORTHCOM.

The company also provides services to government and federal agencies, and previously won a $31m contract extension from US Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA).

This contract was to improve psychological health (PH) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) programmes that provide treatment to members, veterans and their families.
