US-based technology provider Sotera Defense Solutions has been contracted to support the US Army's Defense Readiness Reporting System-Army (DRRS-A).

The $16m contract requires the company to provide support services to the army for a period of three years.

It was awarded by the US Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Software Engineering Center (SEC) under the Software and Systems Engineering Services Next Generation (SSES NexGen) vehicle.

Services will include design, development, integration, test, and documentation preparation for DRRS-A, as well as technical, logistical, training, and administrative support for its systems.

"Sotera looks forward to collaborating with C3T to provide DDRS-A post-production software mission support."

In January, Sotera secured a position to support enhanced solutions for the information technology enterprise (E-SITE) under a $6bn contract from the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
