RESTON, Va., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A multimillion-dollar contract for modernizing the U.S. Marines Corps AN/TSQ-239 combat operations center has been received by iGov.
The company is a provider of tactical IT network systems and system lifecycle support programs. It said the contract is for four years and has a potential value of almost $100 million.
"The ongoing success of our Marine Corps Tactical Collaborative Work Suite 2.0 Program, combined with winning the COC award, is a testament to our proven ability to successfully support the Marine Corps expeditionary IT programs," said iGov Chief executive officer Patrick Neven.
The COC provides mobile, modular and tactical command-and-control centers from battalion to divisional level. It provides tactical data -- including maneuver, fires, intelligence, logistics and administration -- and integrates non-secure, secret voice and data communications, Voice over Internet Protocol capabilities and networked servers.
"Winning COC fits perfectly into iGov's strategic plan for growth and expanding its portfolio of programs with the Marines," said Mike Tyrrell, iGov president and chief operating officer.
"In addition, as part of our core company mission, we strive to deliver mission-centric IT solutions that simultaneously lower acquisition and operational support costs for any program.
"We're honored to have this opportunity and pleased with the confidence entrusted in us to provide critical C2 capabilities for our nation's Marines."
