Lockheed Martin has been selected for future task orders by the US Army. It is one of six vendors the Army has selected for task orders within the Battle Command Family of Products contract ceiling of $777m over five years.
The company has supported the Army Battle Command System since 1994. It will now migrate and modernize the Global Command and Control System-Army capabilities into the Network Enabled Command and Control system, while extending its capabilities and interoperability with other Army, DoD, and coalition elements.
It will also develop cross-domain collaboration and interoperability applications between the Army Battle Command System and key Army systems including the Distributed Common Ground System-Army and Future Combat System.
John Mengucci, president at Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS-Defense division, said: Lockheed Martin has provided the Army with net-centric command and control solutions for more than 10 years. We are honored to continue working with PM Battle Command to create capabilities that will form the core of the Army’s Unified Battle Command solutions throughout the force.
Earlier this month, Lockheed Martin is one of two companies selected by the U.S. Navy to compete for future information fusion task orders established by the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division.
The indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract entails research and development of information fusion – the blending together of source information to produce situational awareness, threat assessment, and resource management.
