DRS receives security support services contract
DRS Defense Solutions announced that its Technical Services business unit has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) task order contract by SSC Atlantic for worldwide provision of Integrated Electronic Security Systems (IESS) sustainment support services valued at up to $100M through 2016.
This multiple award task order contract is for design, installation and maintenance of IESS systems worldwide for SSC Atlantic. It can be used by a range of federal agencies as well. Work on this worldwide project is expected to be completed by March 2012, with the possibility of exercising additional options for the following four years.
"This award is a vote of confidence from a very important customer, whom we already support through other contracts, affirming our company's ability to provide high-quality technical services for our nation's most critical security infrastructure and force protection needs," said Dr. Mitch Rambler, president of DRS Technical Services. "We are proud to have the opportunity to provide the best security to our Department of Defense customers domestically and abroad."
This contract supports the automation of a number of critical systems, including security systems, surveillance systems, automated fuel systems, SCADA systems and more. DRS Technical Services will provide overall sustainment, integration and upgrades of existing integrated electronic security systems. This contract creates a teaming arrangement between DRS Technical Services and the US government to improve availability and supportability of the integrated electronic systems with the overall goal of reducing costs.
