COLORADO SPRINGS, April 3 (UPI) -- Raytheon has submitted its final proposal for a U.S. Air Force broadcast contract of intelligence and situational awareness data.
U.S. company Raytheon announced the submission of its proposal for the Air Force Global Broadcast Service Satellite Broadcast Manager Defense Enterprise Computing Center Transition contract.
The winner of the Air Force GBS contract will be expected to transition the current GBS broadcast functionality to "centralized Defense Information System Agency computing centers," the release said.
Officials say the Air Force GBS provides critical decision-makers with a multimedia broadcast of intelligence and situational awareness data supporting warfighter operational capabilities.
"We have demonstrated the end-to-end GBS Defense Enterprise Computing Center capability in our system integration laboratory, which offers the Air Force the best solution to take GBS to the next level as the government continues support to Iraq and efforts in Afghanistan," Lynn Dugle, Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems business president, said in a statement.
