The PTC is the Army's nerve center in the Pentagon for operating and managing the critical IT infrastructure related to secure, organizational messaging. Under the contract, Telos will assist the center with integrating, operating and maintaining a single, integrated DMS at three security levels.

Telos will also continue to operate and maintain the DMS, providing 24-hour, year-round customer service support for facilities in the National Capitol region and beyond.

"DMS securely sends and tracks official communications for command and control purposes, delivering secure message traffic from one organization to another, providing official orders or guidance to the receiving organization, and transmitting officially recognized intelligence information," said Frank Whitehead, senior vice president and general manager of secure solutions at Telos. "It is the vital backbone on which other secure organizational messaging applications, such as the Automated Message Handling System, reside."
