HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has given Globecomm Systems Inc. two Global Tactical Advanced Communications Systems contracts worth as much as $10 billion.

Under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity awards from the Army's Program Executive Office--Command, Control and Communications--Tactical, Globecomm will provide the service with turn-key communications systems and equipment.

Specifics of the types of communications systems and services to be provided over a five-year period, however, weren't disclosed.

"We are proud to have been selected and entrusted to compete for the future provisioning of mission-critical turn-key communications systems and equipment in support of a host of our warfighters' needs via this contract vehicle," said Globecomm Systems Chief Executive Officer and Chairman David Hershberg.

"We take pride in always providing quality, cost-effective solutions to all of our customers but there is no higher honor than to support the men and women out there on the front lines of our nation's defense."

Added Dwight Hunsicker, Globecomm's vice president of Government Business Development: "This is a great win for us as well as all of our teammates who joined Globecomm in the pursuit of this contract. It will be the primary means of the U.S. Army procuring advanced communications solutions for its mission needs as well as for those needs of the National Guard, various Joint Task Forces, and other civilian agencies."
