iGov to modernise USMC Combat Operations Center

1st February 2013 - 12:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


iGov will modernise the US Marine Corps’ (USMC’s) AN/TSQ-239 Combat Operations Center (COC) under a new contract announced on 29 January. The 4-year, firm-fixed-price contract has a starting value of nearly $100 million with potential to increase in the future.

The contract will see the company perform work to update and modernise the COC infrastructure with the aim of providing significant increase in performance, a simplification of baseline management and reductions in operational and life cycle support costs.

The COC provides mobile, modular command and control centres across the span of tactical command from battalion to divisional level. It provides tactical data and C2 systems to the headquarters, including manoeuvre, fires, intelligence, logistics and administration. The system integrates non-secure, secret voice and data communications, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) capabilities and networked servers. Multiple networks, including SIPRNET, NIPRNET, and coalition, are used to provide security and accessibility among interoperable users. This contract award modernises the existing hardware within the approved acquisition objective.

Patrick Neven, iGov CEO and chairman, said: ‘The ongoing success of our Marine Corps Tactical Collaborative Work Suite 2.0 (TCWS 2.0) programme, combined with winning the COC award, is a testament to our proven ability to successfully support the [US] Marine Corps expeditionary IT programmes.’
