SAN ANTONIO, April 17 (UPI) -- Diligent Consulting Inc. is to provide system administration, engineering and management support services for the U.S. Air Force under a NETCENTS-2 contract.

Services under the NETCENTS-2 Application Services Small Business contract vehicle are to be performed by Diligent -- and its teammate NCI Information Systems Inc. -- for the Air Force Network Cyber Integration Division, the Air Force Network Theater Deployable Communications, and the Gateway Integration and Test Facilities at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts.

The contract from the Air Force Network Support Branch, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, is worth $1.7 million.

“Diligent understands the criticality of the AFNet infrastructure as it provides the warfighter with full access to real-time command-and-control information for day-to-day operations and contingencies,” said Rick Riney, Diligent’s chief operating officer. “As a NETCENTS-2 prime contractor, Diligent is extremely proud to be supporting our warfighters in every environment and location that the AFNet system operates in.”

The Air Force Network system is a portfolio of programs that ensures effective design, deployment, and maintenance of the service’s high-speed, high-capacity digital communications infrastructure.
