The U.S. Navy’s work on the command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems within its Pacific Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) continued by awarding engineering systems designer Geocent with a portion Of a two-year, $249 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quality (IDIQ) contract.
The contract includes M.C. Dean (known for its cyber-physical building designs); McKean Defense Group (business consulting services); Parsons Government Services (construction-related services for government agencies); Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC, science, math, and engineering integration services), Serco Group Plc (provider of public services), Systems Technology Forum (consulting services and program management), Valkyrie Enterprises (veteran-owned service support supplier), and VT Milcom (C4ISR modernization).
As their part of the contract, Geocent will work on the infrastructure of the Navy’s San Diego-based shoreline facilities, including towers, piers and other platforms in addition to mobile electronic systems. Work may extend to other locations in the United States and abroad.
The company hopes to strengthen its standing with the Navy’s NIWC Pacific organization through its work on the contract, which includes systems engineering support on the installation, integration and sustainment of new C4ISR systems. This is one example of the Navy’s efforts at C4ISR systems modernization, a process taking place throughout the joint U.S. Armed Forces.
