LGS to support SIPRNET for Army Reserve

VIENNA, Va., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- STG Inc. has selected LGS to support a U.S. Defense Department classified information network engineering contract.

The Defense Department contracted STG to integrate Army Reserve computer systems with access to the department's classified information network. STG awarded U.S. company LGS a $12 million task order for installation of the Defense Department's Secret Internet Protocol Router Network, or SIPRNET, at 161 Army Reserve facilities.


Officials say the SIPRNET information network is designed to secure the transmission of classified information for military planning and other defense applications.

"LGS is working with the STG team to deliver secure SIPRNET locations across the country," Ron Iverson, LGS chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"Being able to safely share and communicate strategic information is an essential part of any mission. This project expands the existing network and will provide a secure communications environment within the Army Reserves."
