COLORADO SPRINGS, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Two U.S. military commands are to receive information technology support and services from ITT Exelis through a $160 million award.

The re-compete contract from the U.S. Army is for a six-month base performance period with four one-year options.

Under the contract, ITT Exelis will provide operations, maintenance and logistics support for the defense information infrastructure throughout the U.S. Army European Theater as well as performing information assurance and cybersecurity and maintaining satellite communication terminals in deployed locations for the Army Europe Facility Control Office.

It will perform the same services for Africa Command.

"Providing IT services to our nation's warfighters is vital," said Ken Hunzeker, president of the Mission Systems division of ITT Exelis. "We have a proven record of solid performance and this selection allows us to continue a long-standing tradition of exceptional IT support and related services to our European-based customers."

ITT Exelis said the work will be performed in multiple locations in Europe and Africa.
