FAIRFAX, Va., June 19 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has added General Dynamics to its list of companies for providing tactical communications equipment and support.
Under the 5-year contract, General Dynamics will deliver a full array of tactical communications products, infrastructure and services to the Homeland Security Department and its partner agencies, including designing, engineering and installation of communication systems and essential communications components such as repeaters, routers, towers and generators.
"General Dynamics is committed to delivering superior communications capabilities to the Department of Homeland Security through this program," said Jerry DeMuro, executive vice president of General Dynamics' Information Systems and Technology group.
"We will leverage General Dynamics' unique experience working with the department and our legacy of providing tactical communications and infrastructure systems for national-security missions to meet Homeland Security's critical requirements."
Thirty companies have qualified for the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract, which is for five years and carries a potential value of $3 billion.
General Dynamics, however, is only one of five contract recipients eligible for task orders in all technical categories of equipment and services.
