CHANTILLY, Va., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Boeing announced a contract extension from the U.S. Army to extend engineering support for Multimedia Message Manager, a secure messaging capability.

Boeing said it will continue to provide specialized software operations and maintenance support to military intelligence-gathering customers as part of the one-year, $4.3 million extension.

"M3 has remained at the cutting edge of technology, making it the secure messaging tool of choice for the (U.S.) Department of Defense Intelligence Information System and approximately 60 organizations in the intelligence community," said Dewey Houck, director of Mission Systems, a division of Boeing Intelligence & Security Systems. "This award demonstrates defense intelligence customers' confidence in our ability to deliver the necessary technical solutions for their ongoing needs."

M3 provides military and intelligence customers with an immediate solution to information-sharing across intelligence agencies and departments. It provides a robust, stable capability to create, send and receive messages from a variety of sources, real-time distribution of these messages, expedited delivery of high-priority traffic, and segregation of special message types.

It also gives users a quick and easy retrospective search capability that allows analysis and future planning.
