RESTON, Va., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has given Serco Inc. a new production and engineering services contract for support of its Automated Digital Network Systems.

Under the contract, Serco will perform hardware integration and testing to deliver the Navy's newest ADNS configuration in support of Shore, Ship and Submarine installations.

"We are proud to deliver solutions to support our sailors' missions," said Kent Brown, vice president of Serco's Engineering unit. "We look forward to providing the engineering and integration services needed to support our Navy warfighters."

Deployment of the Automated Digital Network Systems began in 1997 and combined Internet Protocol traffic from multiple sources across a single radio path. The upgraded system will enable ADNS to serve as the tactical Wide Area Network for Navy Ships to modernize the Navy's shipboard Local Area Networks.

The contract is for one year with four one-year option years. If all options are exercised, the value would be $68 million.

Serco Inc. is a professional, technology and management services firm focused on U.S. government clients.
