The $121m cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, awarded by the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command (USASMDC) and the Army Forces Strategic Command (ARSTRAT), includes a one-year base period of performance and six one-year option periods.

Under the contract, the company will continue to provide support for the army’s global network and computer systems for critical military satellite communications.
