CHANTILLY, Va., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Engility Holdings Inc. says it will support U.S. Marine Corps communications under two 18-month contracts with a combined value of $18.9 million.

The contracts were issued by the U.S. Army's Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, which is a research and development laboratory.

Engility Holdings said it is to provide integration expertise and hardware integration kits to support the Marine Corps' requirements for integration technology communication interface hubs, which enable high-speed data distribution and interface connectivity between communication electronics maintenance systems, IT Infrastructure and network data links.

The Chantilly, Va., company will also supply and support internal appointment modules, which are specifically designed to provide access to state-of-the-art information technology and communications protocols as well as "plug-and-play" capability maintenance to Marine units in the field.

"These new wins highlight our ability to provide our armed forces with a wide range of specialized information technology modernization and sustainment services and mission expertise to ensure they have a competitive advantage in the field," Engility President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Smeraglinolo said.
